Not suggesting directions to favorite fishing locations :-) but this knowledgeable group might be willing to comment on bike/walk/hike experiences they've had. Seems like the area could provide easy to challenging experiences if one had more knowledge of access points & open Public destinations. Maybe a comment on why your favorite......water features, wildlife, views or other.
Thanks in advance for your comments
Bumping this old thread in hopes of getting some new input...
I live fairly close to Marckworth and have wanted to check it out for some time. Finally made it out there today. Parked at the end of Stossell Creek Road. We were thwarted when my toddler took a tumble out of the truck and decided there was no hiking to be done. So we piled back in the truck and headed home.
I was surprised how bad the road was and that there is a house at the end! Our plan was just to get out and walk and maybe loop up a few logging roads into something interesting if they looked clear.
Looking for trip/loop suggestions. Short or long. Happy to go back sans toddler. I see on the topo map that there are a few waterfalls, lakes, and high points. Are any particularly destination worthy?
I've done several outings there and a few that come to mind: Platts Lookout (no views) is a pretty good road hike and toddler friendly. I heard somebody clipped some of the annoying stickers just before the top. Young Love is a decent summit hike with some mild bushwhacking at the end. An old logging road goes to near the top. Drunken Charlie Lake and Mountain are still on my agenda as are a few other bumps. If you get a Campbell Global Rec permit you can connect to other areas for decent bike rides on good roads.
