Big South Fork‎ > ‎


Horseback riding has become one of the most popular activities at Big South Fork. This information is designed to help you have a safe and enjoyable visit to the area.

To provide access to many of the area’s scenic features, there are over 180 miles of horse trails available throughout the Big South Fork. These horse trails are all signed and marked with a white blaze and yellow horse head. The trails vary in both length and degree of difficulty. They range from short, easy day rides to long and strenuous loops that may take several days to complete. Due to the extensive network of trails, horseback riders are advised to purchase a Trails Illustrated map from either of the park visitor centers, Eastern National, a park concessionaire or local area businesses.
