Description

The rolling woodlands and quiet waters of A.W. Marion State Park offer visitors a welcome escape from the rigors of everyday life. This small (309 acres) but unique park offers a variety of recreational activities while maintaining a quiet atmosphere of natural serenity.

The 9.5-mile singletrack weaves through the trees and includes short but steep hills - up and down. The elevation for the ride is ~825'.

Portable toilets and picnic tables are available at the main parking lot.

The trail by the dam is now open so you can do the full loop. Wooden pathway by the lake a little overgrown but the trail is in incredible shape. 8.7mi — 1h 25m

The trail across the dam is closed for construction. Going north to the dam, the trail across just dead ends into a fence in the middle of the woods.

Tree down at 1.5 miles. Bailed out by camp site and took roads around - glad i did because they are now not playing with the new fence. 2mi

Entire dam area of park closed - not sure of official trail status outside of muddiness, but nowhere to go once you hit that Eagle Scout bridge.
