Horseback Riding

Horses may be ridden on most state forest roads and trails except the Mid State Hiking Trail and within state forest natural areas.

Some trails are very steep or rocky, and their use may be limited.

The Central Mountains Shared Use Trail is recommended for this activity, and maps may be obtained from the district office.

For safety and navigating, recreationists in Bald Eagle State Forest should understand the color-coded trail blazes posted on district trails. The Bald Eagle State Forest Trail Blaze Guide (PDF) explains the meanings of the shapes and colors of encountered blazes.
