Thank you for your interest in equestrian usage of the DuPont State Recreational Forest. We are very fortunate for the opportunity to participate in a multiple use trail plan. DuPont’s trails are used by hikers, bikers, horseback riders, fishermen, and hunters (during season). Multiple use allows all visitors of the forest access to the many wonderful trails at DuPont State Recreational Forest.
To assure continued equestrian usage of trails, it is extremely important that equestrians show good citizenship. All trails are open to horses except for Triple Falls Trail from the picnic shelter to Staton Road and a few foot trails that are clearly marked.
Maintain a safe speed, especially when near highly visited areas such as waterfalls, when approaching intersections and where line of sight is limited. You are likely to meet other horses, bikes and hikers. All trails are two-way. A little courtesy goes a long way toward making our forest experiences great for everyone who shares Du- Pont’s trails.
Please observe the following rules and guidelines.
When you come to DuPont State Recreational Forest, many riders want to see the waterfalls. There are great loops that allows you to see four waterfalls. There are two wooden bridges. If your horse has not crossed a wooden bridge before, you may want to lead them across the first time. The bridges are wide and very solid. Many loops can be developed by connecting the trails. These loops takes about 2 hours, depending on your speed and how long you stay at the viewpoints. It will get you familiar with many other connecting trails.
