They are just a hardwood mix of maple, ash and beech. Maybe a few oaks and cherry's as well. They are fantastically covered with color in the fall. Great pics of your country, although I probably would have some hesitation at going up the snow covered trail you have in the last pic.

Life is like a bronc ride. You gotta hang on, ride it out, and Let er buck!!!!!

How steep is too steep, is also a major function of the horse,
and/or rider.
Many horses can not, or will not, work well on steep slopes,
other take to with ease.

Ditto, a lot of riders can not, or will not, be at ease with steep
slopes while others have not problem.

I've also found horses can manage much steeper slopes without
a rider than they can, with one, especially a timid, or inexperienced
rider.
