The camp is the official trailhead for the Huckleberry Mountain Horse Trail. A user fee is charged at this location.

Fire Information Campfires are allowed (unless in the event of a burn ban), no firewood should be brought in or taken from any of the sites.
Water Availability The trails meander through numerous creeks which provide water for thirsty horses. Pond locations not adjacent to the trail are designated by signs and blue arrows.

Horse Riding

Established in 1989, the Huckleberry Mountain Horse Trail provides 37.3 miles of trail for multiple uses. Originally designed for horseback riding, the trail now provides recreation opportunities for hikers, off-highway vehicles (OHVs) and mountain biking. Winding valleys framed by rugged mountain bluffs give way to spectacular views of the surrounding area. The trails meander through numerous creeks which provide water for thirsty horses. Pond locations not adjacent to the trail are designated by signs and blue arrows. Six trail crossings are located along Big Shoal Creek. These crossings can be difficult during times of high water. Please exercise extreme caution when crossing Big Shoal Creek. Each trail crosses several gravel roads with portions located along old logging roads and open forest roads. These roads allow visitors to access the trail system from many locations. Backcountry trails are rugged and remote. Trails vary in difficulty from easy to strenuous. Bulletin boards are located at many trail access points with a trail registration box. For monitoring purposes and your safety, please be sure to sign in at registration boxes.
