Trail Description These trails have a lot of potential but they are not marked very well and riders have created a lot of rogue trails that intersect all over the place. Without better trail markers, its hard to tell which trail to turn on and can make a first time user feel confused. There are several waterfalls, all marked clearly on the map but not in the actual forest, so theyre easy to miss (this is where a lot of the rogue trails are.) Waterfalls can barely be seen from your horse, you have to tie up and walk down to them. Expect mud if theres been a lot of rain. The forest is very pretty and the trail system connects to the Salamonie State Park trail system which can make your riding longer. Indiana state bridle tags required.
