We’ve been remiss in not updating you all on our trip, especially to Rhonda who generously provided a wealth of recommendations for our first trip to BSF. We absolutely loved the trip and no doubt we will be going back and will be staying at the Whisperwood cabin. It was perfect…except for one thing. Due to the Gov shutdown and park closure, we were somewhat limited in reaching some of the trails in-side the park. That is not to say we didn’t ride in the park, it means we couldn’t park at the trail heads to reach the real good trails.
We shoed both horses on all four and will the next time. The recommendations to do so were very good.
Since our quarter horses Dakota and Dillon are not what you’d consider to be speed demons and we rode out of the Whisperwood cabin on a couple of days, we didn’t make it the O&W trail and a another trail recommended by Rhonda and Gunslinger. On our arrival, we we’re scouting out the trail head locations and we were warned by the owner of the Hitching Post, the park rangers were locking tires and giving $400 tickets to those parking there. One day, we parked at the campground across from one of the trail heads and rode around the barriers. We also went down to East Fork one day and rode there. We cut our trip short a couple of days, due to the Wx.
The Equine Disneyland that Gunslinger described it as was a perfect description. We loved it and we will be going back and will keep and do those Rhonda/Gunslinger recommended trails we didn’t get to on this trip. The recommendations were extremely helpful to us! Thank you all, especially to Ronda. The wealth of information you provided gave us a huge leg-up and was greatly appreciated!!!! J
Happy trails to all.
