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 include short but steep hills - up and down. Elevation for the ride ~825'.
From the Parking Lot, head towards the lake edge. You will likely see a line of singletrack along the edge of the water. I would suggest starting in a clockwise direction otherwise you may not see the MTB trail markings if going counter-clockwise. Once you pass the boat dock, you will continue into the woods. There is one point where you will cross a wooden bridge, then up some steep stairs that you'll likely have to walk your bike up. At the top of the stairs, you can continue into the MTB trail to the left (careful, this section has the steepest section of MTB trail. Beginners may want to continue on the hiking path toward the campground). Once you hit the campground, the MTB trail is marked, and you will see orange paint on many trees alongside the trail. Follow the orange markings to continue on the trail, and you will make your way around Hargus lake. When you hit the dam, you can continue to the parking lot, or follow the MTB signs back into the woods, for another few miles before making your way back up tot he parking lot.
