Rural hike close to Winston-Salem, Piedmont stream and woodlands, and fields. This is a nice hike close to Winston-Salem. It has a nice rural feel to it after you get started. The trails include a couple of different loop options. It is a relatively easy hike with a few ups and downs along the way. The hike offers a wide variety of scenery (Piedmont woodlands and streams, mowed fields, old cemetery). This is a good trail if you're wanting to get away from town for a little while.

This trail is very up and down and can be quite hard to navigate when muddy. Also there is a firing range near the far end of the trail, so if your dog is scared of guns and thunder, beware!

Very fun single track, with a nice touch of grass cross country trails for added mileage.

Slippery after a solid rain, but very good retry woodland trail. Quite a lot of inclines.

My favorite hiking trail by far and I've only been on it in the winter! It's vast, peaceful and just the right amount of challenging. I love this trail.

Beautiful park. Trails are good short hiking, took my dog and she did good on the trails. It was little warm to wear jeans.

A and B are both pretty easy trails. Good for a quick afternoon walk.

Good spot for a short hike. I like loop B as oppose to loop A but there is a big difference in difficulty. I would say loop A is beginner friendly, kid friendly, and all around pretty flat and easy. Loop B has more incline and brush on the trail (which I prefer), it was very wet when I went. The area was very damp and shaded.

my boyfriend and I really enjoyed this trail. at one point, on Loop A, the trail breaks off into a large open field with a beautiful bundle of trees in the middle. it was a nice detour and would be a lovely place to bring a picnic. and bug spray. but also watch for snakes and junk.

Really nice local park not far from town with a lot of activities...good place for the family. Surprisingly nice trail with two loops totaling 2.8 miles. It includes some rolling elevation changes as it follows along a creek. And it wasn't crowded on my first visit.
