You can either go on a mountain bike trail or ride your horse. the trails are separate so the horses aren'r spooked by the bikes. trails have been well maintained . large field to pull in your vehicle. Picnic tables and bathrooms are available.

No stroller, Is a single trail for bikes and horses but you can walk. But on Millhoper Rd. Is a park part of the same system that is exclusive for hikers (no bikes no horses) but sorry no stroller friendly.
