Horseback Riding

Enjoying a trail ride in Vermont is great fun.

Horseback riding is a great way to get out into the forest and is permitted on state land on designated multi-use trails as well as gravel surface roads. Most links below are for general trail maps, but look for forest roads as a way to access state lands.
