Question Red Hill Horse camp

Has anyone checked out The Red Hill Horse camp in Livingston Ky.
from what I'm seeing you can ride like 100's of miles in the Danial Boone National Forest. Has anyone riding these trails that can give some info about
how well they are maintained? I know that area and I know that there is lots
of creeks around there.

I don't know anything about that area, but I highly recommend East Fork Stables in Jamestown, TN. It looks about equal distance from you. There is also South Fork in that area also.

My SO and I rode there a year or so ago - I loved it! The owners were both incredibly nice people. Gene (I think that was his name) really knows the trails and is a great resource when it comes to recommending which ones to take based on how long you want to ride, and what kind of riding you like. He'll mark up a map for you to show you where to go, and the trails were pretty well-marked.

The camp was well-kept with nice stalls for the horses at night and nice, flat sites for a wide variety of trailers and rigs. I can't remember for certain if they allow you to set up high tie lines or not.

You can access the trails from a few trailheads at the camp, so it's nice not having to backtrack when going in and out of camp. Everything from riding along the top of a ridge to riding down alongside a stream - one trail was pretty washed out but most of them were nice.

Noteworthy, though, is that some of the trails are shared with ATVs and dirtbikes. We ran into a couple of groups of them - one understood the concept of trail etiquette, the others just flew on by. And some people complain that horses tear up trails.

Would I go back to Red Hill? You bet. We were only there for a weekend so we didn't get to do much riding, but I would absolutely love to go back and see more of it.
