Regarding trail Sandy Lake near Halifax, NS

Hi There, I sure could use some help from some avid hikers, bikers and nature lovers like myself. My husband and I were out for a drive today trying to find Sandy Lake, in Halifax County (Off Hwy 103, Rt. 5) We found the road past the power tower and took that right. We arrived at a fork on the dirt road which read: Sandy Lake (arrow right) and on the left side of the fork was an A right was B. We followed the B and drove quite a ways(not sure how far) but could not find Sandy Lake. Perhaps we did not drive in quite far enough? Would anyone be able to give me proper directions and approx. kilometers that we will need to drive to find Sandy Lake. My family used to picnic regularly at this spot, but I was too small to remember how to get there. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Regarding trail Sandy Lake near Halifax, NS x-NS-3241

I just looked at it on Google Earth and when travelling North on the road from Hiway 103 to Sandy Lake, there is a Wye in the road about ~1.3km, take the left fork another 1.6km and that is where the previous poster parked.

Sandy Lake is fairly long, just over 3km I'd say, so I'm not sure if there is one particular area there you're looking for. It shows up well in GoogleEarth so you may want to scout it there.

The road I'm referring to is just East of a bridge or causeway over Little Indian Lake and is called (in GoogEarth) Hiking Trail Road and is across Hiway 103 from Bowater Mersey Road. It is 3.5km West of the centerline of Hiway 213 crossing.
