Trail riding (bring own horse) in North Carolina/Alabama/Georgia?

Hey there!
I am looking for a scenic area to camp with my horses. I live in South Carolina and am not looking to travel too far...I've camped in Pisgah before when I was younger, but never brought anything to ride.
Has anyone been to AL, NC or GA that you would recommend going to? I would really like some kind of river/waterfall scenery as well...mountains too.
My horses are shod and I would rather have more a difficult/challenging ride but will not sacrifice this for beautiful scenery.
Thanks :)

Roosevelt State Park in Georgia has riding trails that are supposed to be nice. They have camping, but I'm not sure about horse camping. It is probably worth looking into.

Hubby and I went to Leatherwood in NC it was beautiful and great riding. We also go to Big SouthFork in Tennessee. If that is possible for you it is a wonderful horse friendly place.

In Georgia. You can ride and camp at the Cohutta wilderness area north of Chatsworth GA. A primative Campground (state owned) called Cottenwood patch.

You should check out Grayson Highlands State Park in southwestern VA. IMHO it's one of the most beautiful places on earth PLUS they have feral ponies that are fun to observe and photograph. We are planning on taking two of my mustangs camping up there in a couple months:)

I have looked at leatherwood before too! Looks amazing, they have a web cam if you google their site you can see some of their facilities. Man, I am envious!! I live in North Carolina but would be stuck camping by myself if I ever decided to! Have a great time and take pics!

ETA: I went to Dupont state forest recently, and it was magnificent!! The trails were drool worthy! I'm positive they have camping nearby. This is highly recommended!

Man I wish we were closer ~ I'd be happy to go camping w/you! Unfortunately I'm still trailer-less at this point in time :(

Leatherwood has houses you can rent.. they have a cheap $75 a nite effeciency appartment type right beside the barn that hubby and I stayed in. It was perfect because all we needed was bed/shower/fridge. I really enjoyed staying there but it was a 7 hour drive for us... so we will only be able to go for special occasions!

We are going to Circle E in Belvidier (sp) TN at the end of next month.. once again staying in a cabin. We (hubby and I) are old enough that we want a bed/shower and don't have a LQ trailer.

Here's a listing of areas in North Carolina. You can also find trails in your other states of interest here as well.

I really liked the Tsali Rec area.
