Places to trailride/camp with horses

Hey we are a small group of trail riders looking for new places to camp/ride with our horses. We have several areas to ride/camp if anyone is interested in coming to Pa to ride. And we are always open to travel to surrounding states like Ohio,West Virginia to trail ride/camp. Can anyone offer any place that would be interesting?

Does anyone have information on Saltfork Park in Ohio?

Iron Mountain in VA and Greenbriar River in WV are nice. So is the Hocking State Forest in Ohio.

I'm from south central PA and curious where you ride in PA...

Fort Valley Stables has campgrounds with full equine facilities and either primitive campsites, sites with hookups or even a couple of cabins.

Here's thier website:

http://www.fortvalleystable.com/c-5-...ampground.aspx

They have direct acces to the whole Fort Valley trail system where major endurance events are held every year. Lots of trails, and they have maps and directions.

Not far from there is also Secret Passage Ranch, they offer primitive camping, some facilities and access to the same trails as Fort Valley.

Both have the ability to handle groups.

I've driven through Salt Fort State Park in Ohio and there were a lot of horses camped at the campground and people out riding the trails. This was before I had my horses though and we were looking at the regular campground for a possible motorcycle overnight trip. Looked like a nice place though.

Another nice park nearby there is Beaver Creek State Park. Again, this was before I had my horses and my husband and I rode our bikes there to go hiking. Lots of people riding the trails. Here's a picture I snapped while we were hiking. This was in late April 2007.



Another place to think about is further north in the Allegheny National Forest. We took a guided trail ride at Hickory Creek Ranch and there's another one nearby there called the Flying W I think. Both have overnight facilities for horses and camping.

These are all places I plan to go trail riding next year.

where do you ride in PA?

Hey where in PA do you recommend riding? We don't have a trailer yet, but hopefully by spring we might. I live in New Florence (by Johnstown). We would want some not too difficult trails as we are still novice riders.

I am northeast of Pittsburgh Pa and we ride Moraine State Park, Benezette, Sigel and Crooked Creek Horse Park. There are other places to. But I always like to ride different places. You can camp at Crooked Creek Horse Park and Benezette. If you are interested in coming for a weekend or something leave me know

Places to Ride

Glad I found this forum. I just moved from Cincinnati to Seattle and I'm really looking forward to hitting the trails out here!

Best places to trail ride near Cincinnati are East Fork, Hueston Woods, and Paint Creek state parks.

In the interest of full disclosure I actually have a website that's dedicated to trails. The links above are to bridle paths that I've mapped. Hope you like the site, it's free!

Thanks for the chance to share!
