State forests have almost unlimited opportunities for horseback riding which has become a rapidly growing activity. Twelve state forests maintain over 3,000 miles of shared-use trails that can be explored on horseback. In addition, 1.9 million acres is available for cross-country riding. Only Natural Areas, Keystone Hiking Trails and certain other areas posted closed are off limits to equestrians.

Countless other riding opportunities exist within almost all state forests. For details on available trails, facilities and access, contact the state forest office of your choosing.
