I really had a great hike this hike takes about an hour if not in a hurry the first part starts just to the right of the rock house and you can stop to enjoy the wonderful sights about half way through the hike at the cliff overlooking beautiful black river at the halfway point just past the cliffs the trail turns rocky for awhile but is very passable this trail is well marked tennis shoes would be good for this walk

Pretty hike at start and finish, but middle is just a walk through the woods on a very narrow trail. The trail starts right beside the house and is straight uphill, then levels off for a while. A few nice views, but they would probably be obscured by foliage in late spring/summer. I went in February and could see how river levels would easily overtake the lower section of this trail. It seems like it would be very overgrown (bugs and snakes!) in the summer, but was a nice hike early on.

I’ve been to Markham Springs many many times throughout my life and never realized this trail existed! I hiked it in December so all the leaves were on the ground. It made it a little difficult to stay on the trail at certain points. I started by the river (it’s very narrow. I’m assuming it is due to the flooding last year) and hiked up and came out behind the house. That is the only place I totally lost the trail and just walked off the side of the hill. When I do it again I will start behind the house. Cons: No bulletin at trail head with information. Poorly marked at the beginning and end. Pros: Really beautiful hike. Very secluded. Great over looks of the river and lots of elevation change! Great trail for a beginner looking to get experience!

My girlfriend and I are from the area and visit this spring frequently, but had no idea this trail was here until I got this app. What a surprise! This trail was awesome! It includes many elevation changes, steep steps, a riverside stretch and, beautiful views. We will definitely be hiking it again and telling our friends about this trail. There is a few trees that are over the trail, but easy to get around.

The trail was extremely overgrown. There were two areas that were impassable because of trees that had fallen and resulted in us having to find a way around though a ton of brush. Found several ticks on me afterwards because the entire trail was overgrown.

Markham Spring Recreation Area is more than just a campground, though the campground is very nice and an excellent location for Boy Scout trips. However, there is so much more. The grounds boast a small spring that appears blueish green in color and very blue during the cool winter months. Along the lake is an old mill, small bridges over a nearby creek and a few benches. Behind the lake is an old stone house that is currently being restored. Very soon, guests will have the opportunity to rent the home for weekends. I was fortunate enough to have been granted the opportunity to explore it by those men who are restoring it. It is impressive! This alone is worth the short trip if you are in the region. However, a two-mile trail that begins behind the house offers spectacular overhead views of Black River, forested land below, a stunning open dale, and mountain peaks in the distance. The trail ends by walking down along the river to the campground where one will have more benches and a view of several small eddies. If one turns about and covers the trail again back to their vehicle, then it becomes a four-mile sojourn. I do this route almost every time. Please, bear in mind that the campground is only open certain times of the year (this includes the boat launch). Call ahead if you plan on camping.
