Riding horses on the Wayne NF

Three trail systems offer varying lengths and experiences for the trail rider. Click on the trail system below to find out more. For a downloadable rack card (front and back) of horse trails on the Wayne click here.

You must bring your own horse to ride our trails. We do not have horses available on the Forest to rent.
