Marathon Lake Recreation Area Trail

It was really pretty here but this is a pretty small area. Only one trail you can do and you can't get away from people much. It's a short hike around the lake and I could still hear everyone hollering and screaming across the water. Definitely not a place to go if you want to get away from it all. I even went into the woods and I could still hear the people across the lake. Nice short walk with a pretty setting though.

This is the second time I've hike here. my God son wanted to climb a few rocks. I felt safe with these rocks they weren't anything a 19 year old in good shape can handle.
We crossed the bridge (at the end of. the park about 3 miles down) and went straight ahead and made the loop. it was about 3 miles and nothing to hard to handle. very nice scenery and nice walk. really enjoyed myself.

After we came across the Bigfoot horse trail, the tux trail was hard to follow. so we turned around and slept at the horse trail campground

The trails me to have changed in recent years. On the map I downloaded, three trails were listed. Unfortunately they have since combined this trail into one. Most of "Tally Creek" is closed, and the current trail is called "Richardson Creek" trail and is between 9-10 miles. It is a very well marked and nice trail as of 5/1/15. We hiked it, but a few bikers passed us and I saw several tire marks in softer ground, and it certainly seemed bikeable. Good bridges and I only remember one fallen tree that hadn't been cleared yet. Very nice campground with clean bathrooms.

This is the 1st park I went to using this park. I didn't read that is was there and back (my fault) so we went further until we run into people who said we should turn around. We walked about 6 miles instead of 4, but it is ok. it wasn't real hard or steep. there are no signs (that's bad). the 1st mile is very easy and it is a beautiful area. This a great 1 to 2 hour walk on a pretty afternoon.

Did this trail years ago. They had an outhouse in the parking lot. They were just then building the current modern bathroom facilities. Took many pictures but can't figure our how to upload any of them.

I just hiked the trail only to find out it is closed approx 3 miles in. There is evidence of fire damage in the area, so I'm not sure when it will open back up.

Our first hike. Very fun, however the grounds were very wet so there was a bunch of mud. Beautiful scenery and trees. We even saw 2 small snakes. Dam is out so trail is one way in one way out. We turned back early because we didn't have proper shoes on to go through ankle deep water. All in all, very fun. We will be back soon!!

Enjoyable day hike, the landing of course was extremely buggy so bring your spray. Lots of poison ivy at he beginning, but faded out quickly. My kids loved paying in the water and it was pretty shady through must of the trail.
