Long Leaf Horse Camp & Trail

The Longleaf Horse Trail provides horseback riding enthusiasts with an opportunity to ride cross-country through mixed pine and hardwood forests. A long 23 mile day loop and short 3 mile loop are color marked for easy trail identification and travel. Beginners, as well as experienced riders, will enjoy the variety in terrain, forest types, and flowering vegetation along the trail. Longleaf is open year-round unless weather conditions require the area to be closed. Longleaf is a fee area. The fee station is located just beyond the entrance gate. No attendant will be on duty. Therefore, users should make sure that they have correct currency before arriving at the recreation area.
