A.W. Marion State Park features a scenic loop. This trail has a few good views of Hargus Lake, some tougher hills (with stairs), plenty of geocaching, and is very friendly to dogs. Hargus has lots of fishing, a lively marina, great camping, and picnicking in many spots.

Absolutely beautiful. Very peaceful place, not a lot of people. It is totally dog friendly and you can see the water the entire time.

Hiked these trails today with my wife .A few things upset me a little! 1. Covered dog poop on trail with a big rock! 2. Thought world war 3 was goin on at the S>E> end of the lake! 3.Met hunters on the trail with guns.This is a beautiful place to relax and unwind. Just not today!!!!

Quaint trail for a very pleasant hike. No elevation change, well-worn, easy trail but with some really nice scenery. I stayed at the campground on the opposite side of the lake and literally started the trail from my camp site. Nice quick morning hike with dogs before hitting the road.

Amazing trail to hike with a lake view for the most part. Quiet difficult to run as the trail had a lot of tree roots above ground.

Nice trail for a quick hike! Please keep your pets on a leash,IT IS THE LAW! And if your to lazy to pick up the poo Please just kick it off the trail. Other than that there is a gun range on the south side of the lake. Should be no problems they shoot away from the trail! Been coming here for years no major problems...
