In a few cases you may share the trail with ATVs and snowmobiles.

Some of the trails listed here include an adjacent bridle path with a natural surface purpose-built for hooves. In other places, horseback riding is expressly forbidden, which we note when the information is available. In some cases you may be able to ride horses along a segment of trail in one county but not along the same trail in another county. Even if the trail falls within a single county, different trail segments sometimes have different rules regarding equestrian use. Most horseback riding trail maps will have this information, so be sure to check the links provided with a particular trail (under "Related Links" on the trail description page). Where the trail information seems vague concerning horseback riding, again check the local trail website for details.
