You will ride on hillside, rolling and level trails.

Footing:

Good footing for horses throughout woodland settings.

Markings:

There is an informative free horse trail map that can be obtained in the park rental offices.

A primitive horse camping area in the Red House area is available, if you would like to extend your stay, (Call 716-354-9121) and in the Quaker Area, cabins are available where you can have horses (call 716-354 2182).

Parking:

Day parking areas are available at the intersection of ASP Rte 1 and France Brook Road in the center of the park and at the Bradford Pa. entrance in the Quaker area near the Pennsylvania State line.
