The park has an extensive network of equestrian trails, covering more than 15 miles throughout the southern half of the park. The equestrian trail system is comprised of four primary trails: the Dude Lake Trail, the Mustang Trail, the Blue Trail and the Yellow trail. In addition, many more miles of firebreaks are part of the trail system, and used to connect the primary trails to each other and provide alternate trail routes to explore by horseback. Equestrian trails are color-coded and numbered with posts at each trail intersection. Ask for an equestrian trails map at the Ranger Station. The equestrian parking lot provides ample parking for horse trailers, and is the starting point for equestrians to "hit the trails" by horseback.
