The trail ride is suited for the confident rider who is able to navigate his or her horse through areas in which are narrow paths and open spaces. Along the beautiful trails, riders will encounter road and traffic crossings, hills, trains, gravel roads, stream crossings, wetland drains, corn fields, abandoned roads, and large and small wooded areas. While held a walk, timid horses or riders may find the trail challenging.
