The train park in Chiliquin Oregon is a great place to drive. The Jacobus horse park borders the train park. There are corrals and water there. Go through a gate and you are in the train park. The park is the biggest model train park in the world. They keep up the roads to maintain the track and there is no motor traffic allowed in the park. The roads cross the track in a few places and there are miniture towns and water towers near the road. You can drive all day r without crossing your track. The terrain is varied and at one point there is a beautiful overlook of Klamath Lake. Contact Southern Oregon Hores and Carriage Club if you need directions or Joyce Jacobis's phone number. The gate is locked so you have to call Joyce. Camping is free and there is a modern rest room.

Roosevelt lake just east of Phx in Tonto Nat Forest has a nice horse camp ground. There is water, corrals, and restrooms. The trails can be pretty difficult, but it ties into the AZ Trail. It's very scenic.
Also, Houston Mesa trail out of Payson has horse camping and plenty of trails. Lots of pine trees so it's a cooler ride in the summer.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
