Bailey Lake Equestrian Trail

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Enjoy this trail from high in the saddle. Take your horse on a slow trot through a tall, red pine forest over what was once a logging road and railroad grade at the turn of the century. Early loggers used a combination of horse drawn sleds and trains to haul timber from the woods. Once the snow falls, parts of this trail are used as a snowmobile route.
