Hey, any other Indiana trail riders out there, or likes to visit Indiana state parks to trail ride?

I try to trail ride around the property when I can, but haven't since the cold weather has come in. It's very wet and slippery around here, and I've been focusing on my filly, working out the last of her kinks and keeping weight on her for this winter. I want to go over to Brown County next summer with my mare, I hear it's amazing.

Hello from a fellow hoosier! Sadly I don't get to trail ride often, I spend a lot of time in the arena training & giving lessons, I do trail ride in my own woods quite a bit but rarely find enough time to hit the state parks. When we do go we go to Tippecanoe, Salamonie & Brown County. I try to get to each at least once a year.

Yes Brown County is a very lovely park and a blast to ride. Tons of different trails to ride. My husband and I run Whitewater Memorial State Park saddlebarn. They have nice trails too.

I'm over in Ohio, but usually make it to Indiana a few times a year for either a day trip (to the little state park at Liberty), or for a long weekend at Brown County or Midwest.

Indiana takes much better care of its trails than Ohio, so it's worth the trip and the small park use fee.

I like Brown County - plenty of good riding there, nice variety of trails with plenty of options. And I like being able to do rides as a loop, instead of always coming in and out of camp on the same trail.

The campground is also nice and nicely-kept, so it makes a good "test ride" for our first camping trip each spring.

I've heard Deam Lake is nice, but we've not been there yet. Might shoot for there, or Harrison-Crawford in the coming year.

We ride the trails around our property and on/through several surrounding properties. There is a large group of people on our road who like to ride, so we never have a hard time coming up with a partner or two (or three or ten, lol) to ride with. The folks down the road that we ride with have gone to Brown County a lot, and we are thinking of trying our hand at it ourselves now that we have added a second riding horse to our family. Prior to that, it was only DD's horse and she couldn't very well go up there on a ride on her own.

I'll keep it in mind to stop in some time! Looks like you had a pretty steady stream of business when I rode there back in the early autumn. My boyfriend has a buddy who rides that park nearly every day - he lives in Brookville and just trailers over.

It really is a great park for a day ride. Not the most visually stunning or physically demanding trails, but we usually do the full loop in one direction, stop back at the trailer for lunch and to give the horses a breather, then ride the loop again in the opposite direction.

Great place for getting a young or green horse used to trails, especially that section that runs alongside the main campground. We jokingly refer to that as the "tunnel of terror" because you never know what odd things will be going on in the campsites on the other side of the fence. Kids, bikes, dogs, fires, tents - it's all there!

Happy trails!
