I live within walking distance to Lake Wintergreen (1 mile or so) and it is one of my favorite places to hike and unwind. The trails are well-groomed and clearly marked. It can be very muddy this time of year so water-proof hiking boots are a must. I do not recommend walking alone in the park at off-peak times. I have walked alone when I had a large black dog and a stick but will not venture in there without a companion and a cell phone. Need to use common sense. The view across the lake is spectacular and walking up to Baldwin Drive to look over the river is beautiful, especially in the fall.
