The entrance to the equestrian trails can be found on State Road 40 near the intersection with State Road 326, 1.3 miles east of the Main Entrance. The trails open at 8:00 am and close one hour before sunset. Maps are available at the trailhead near the pay station. Non-potable water is available for horses by hand pump but you must bring your own buckets.
If you do not have your own horse, Cactus Jack's Trail Rides will offer groups or individuals (6 years and up) rides at the nearby Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway, part of the Florida State Parks. Call them for reservations at 352-266-9326.
PLEASE NOTE: Silver Springs State Park’s equestrian trails traverse a wetland habitat. Unless we are in drought conditions, expect areas of mud and standing water along the trails. In the warmer seasons there may be biting insects, plan accordingly.
