Sherman's Mill Trail is located by the side of the large horse barn on the east side of US 17. It's an easy path that is well marked beginning along a wide grassy path and venturing back into a thin woodland. Our trip rewarded us with a sighting of what appeared to be a very tame cottontail and a chorus of songbirds. Red fox, white-tailed deer, and even black bear inhabit the area. Rolling pasture in the foreground and Blue Ridge Mountains at the backdrop makes for enchanting scenery.
A picnic table, grill and trash can are located near trailhead.
