What type of trails do you perfer?

So, which type of trail do you perfer?

Nice easy, quiet, laid back trails. Hardly any hills, and if there are hills, just tiny ones. Pretty scenery. Lots of fields and trees, no water to cross and nothing to jump.
Quiet trails, lots of steep hills that you have to go up and/or down. Pretttty scenery. Sharp turns or else off cliff. Logs to jump. A creek to cross.

So in other language....
Do you perfer a nice, calm easy trail ride.....or an intese one? Lol

Me, at first I liked the nice easy calm ones cause that is what I was used to....but since at the new barn, they have the intense trails and OMG I love them!!
Sonny seems to like them alot more also!

I didn't vote because I prefer WIDE enough trails and NOT in open field. As for hardness of it - I don't care that much. In fact I do like having different obstacles on my way to teach my youngsters (I don't go for very long rides too because of back issues).

Last month I tried a new trail and it was almost 90 degrees up (VERY-VERY steep). Going up was OK, however going DOWN was a real fun - my horse almost slide on her butt. It was fun but little too much (too rocky around). However the stream there was just beautiful - I spent 30 mins trying to drive my horse away from middle.

I'm the same way, depends on what mood I'm in. I like going fast so I do prefer a groomed trail for that. We have too many coyotes here that dig really large leg breaker holes and armadillos that dig small hoof catchers. If I know the trail is hole free I can go faster.
I like a challenge just to make it fun too.

I like the quiet relaxing trail rides! I am afraid of heights so I hate when were riding by a big drop off or going down a big hill. But I guess once in a while an intense ride is fun!

I voted intense as the closest to 'off the trail' rides that I prefer...through the woods without a trail you can come across almost anything...and our mares seem to love it too...I think they enjoy having their minds kept very busy.

Both--I like to mix it up.
