This day use only park, located just north of Dayton in Springfield, provides equestrians with about 10 miles of trail access in essentially one large loop trail.
Many horse trails throughout Ohio have been established and are maintained by volunteers of Ohio Horseman’s Council in cooperation with landowners.
The Ohio Horseman’s Council Inc. is a non-profit corporation organized in the state of Ohio. We advocate for the preservation of bridle trails throughout the state as well as the rights of equine owners.

Very nice place for riding. Some hills, some shade, some sun. This is usually the first trail ride of the season.
The ground drains fairly well. There is a small trail that leads to the reservoir where the horses can get a drink. There are high lines for the horses while you eat a lunch at the shelter house that has picnic tables. Usually, during the riding season, there is a port-a-john. I do recommend making sure you lock your valuables while out on the trail. This part of the park is on far side and doesn\’t have as much Park Ranger activity. The trails are maintained by Clark County Ohio Horseman’s Council and they were out the day we were riding. They were very respectful of our horses and us asking where work was needed. Got a few pictures when we stopped to take our jackets off. Love spring riding
