I live in Forest Co. They're putting 38 miles of trails in at Duhring near Marienville. I met John Crandell over there this fall checking/working on the trails. He's an endurance rider that's won the Tevis and Old Dominion rides. The ones I rode I didn't think were difficult.
SpiritLifter, The Cook Forest trails that you ride ... are they at the park or at Ray's Scenic Trail rides? I know they put more trails in at the park, but not sure where the parking is. The old ones they had I rode once, but they weren't very long.
If anyone comes this way give me a shout, I'll try to meet up with you as long as you're safe to ride with. I have a messed up back and only travel at a walk.
I belong to the NHLA National Horse Lovers Association - Home Check them out...don't let "national" fool you. Most of the members are from Portersville, New Castle, Butler area and most of the rides are NW PA. They ride as Moraine, Raccoon, Flying W Ranch, Duhring, 2 Mile Run (that is a nice place with decent trails in Venango Co), etc.. check out the schedule.
I want to try finding someplaces to ride in E PA. I've talked to some gals that ride near Forksville and Renova...hope to get there next yr.

$30 to ride for the day or to camp overnight?

We don't usually pay anything for day riding. There are a couple of places that charge. I paid $5/day at Hickory Creek a few yrs ago and $10 at Ray's a couple of yrs ago. At Ray's they gave you maps of 6 different trails that you could ride.
No where else that we ride charges for day rides. 2 Mile charges $5/night to camp, other places charge $17 to $25 depending on whether you camp primitive or get an electric site. And if you get a stall instead of using a picket line it's more.

Ponygal mentioned Flying W; here's the link to them.

Guest Ranch in Kelletteville Pennsylvania with Trail Rides, Rodeo, Cabins, Hiking and Restaurant with a bar

I haven't lived in W-PA since 1998 so I don't know how the trails are. There's a variety of riding levels and it was always well worth camping.

When the bears were on the move, I would rent a tie stall for my horse because they used to have the picket line right next to the dumpsters

WTW, I'm Glenny's friend. I live on the Allio farm. I ride the ranch trails on this side of Tionesta Crk. Got Glenny misplaced back there for awhile this fall. WE were hunting together out of my tree house on Monday. Didn't see any bucks, but she got some pictures of a few doe that we KNOW we could have had. :)

I live in WPA and we go to Mingo Creek State Park all the time. It's hilly but very fun and you can go all day. There are so many trails.
