Overview

A.W. Marion State Park offers a great loop that is 95% dirt trails, with some decent hills to keep things interesting.

Description

You can park on the northwest side of the lake, off of Warner-Huffer Rd, or you can park on the northeast side of the lake off of Ringgold Southern Rd. Both parking areas have port-a-pottys, but water is only available at the North East Parking area.

The entire trail system is 5 miles if you add both the Pine Grove Trail and the Squawroot Trail to your loop of the Hargus Lake Trail. The Hargus Lake Trail is the longest trail in the area, but plenty of smaller loop trails make it easy to customize the lenght of your loop. The route shown here covers all of the trails in the park, highlighting lake views and scenic woods.
