Purchasing an Annual Permit allows you access to over 400 acres and 21 beautiful trails! Our trail system has a bit of everything: flat easy areas, creek crossings, step over logs, some good hills and more technical trails on the back side. The trails are marked, but if you have any questions please ask at the office.


Horse trailer day parking, tie areas and wash areas are located to your right as you enter the parking lot.

Please follow the signs. Water and hoses are in front of the dairy barn

(see sign that says water as you drive in).  Bathrooms are located at Red Fern Riding Center.


Due to insurance and horse health safely, the barn and arena at Red Fern Riding Center

is not open to visiting trail horses. However, we welcome any and all questions,

we can provide trail directions, tell funny horse jokes, or direct you to our commode! 

We love making new friends, and are often happy to ride the trails with park visitors.
