This is a level chip and seal paved road that you have to ride. The area is beautiful with a lot of wildlife to enjoy watching. It could be a great wet weather season alternative it it’s not water fowl migrating season. I’d be hesitant to ride here when there’s a chance of 100’s ob birds taking off at the same time. This is a swamp so bring lots of bug spray for you and your horse. Make sure your horse is vaccinated for West Nile Virus.
Other Trail Users:
