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.

Very fun loop around the lake. Some punchy climbs mixed into an overall fairly flowy trail. Great stuff for the area and totally worth the drive!

Trail is for experienced riders. If you're not into short punchy technical climbs and techy creek crossings, its not gonna be fun. Sep 30, 2018

There's a gun range right by the trail on the Southeast side, so don't freak out when you hear gunshots. Oct 4, 2018

I wanted to add that it is very hard to find the trailhead from the parking lot. A more detailed map would be helpful. Once on the trail, they did a pretty good job of signing all the mountain bike paths (the trail crosses over the hiking paths several times). When in doubt, Look for the orange/red spray paint on trees and you will know you are on the mountain bike trail. Creek crossings and mud might make this a more suitable ride for a plus or fat bike.
