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.

Well marked trail and a variety of elevations. I will definitely be back. Beautiful view looking over Black River.

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.
