Long Leaf Horse Camp & Trail Updated:04/2023

The longleaf Horse Trail is a multipurpose trail (hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and horse wagons) that winds through a longleaf pine ecosystem.  It has  three trail loops, totaling 21 miles of trail for riders to explore. Each loop is marked with a different trail color to allow for easy trail identification and travel.  

Parking, picnicking, camping and fishing are available at the trailhead.  All 12 campsites have picnic tables, fire-rings, and a hitching post.  There is no potable water available.  The Gator Pond can be used to water horses but no horses are allowed on the pond dam.
