San Felasco is by far the best setup place for horse riding we have seen in Florida.  The horse trails are separated from the bike trails, the trails are very well marked, every picnic stop has tables, hitching rail and a mounting block, lots of parking, a wash rack, etc.

 

San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park offers the equestrian the opportunity to ride through a variety of outstanding natural areas.

The 3.6-mile Cellon Creek Trail winds through shady woods and along the Cellon Creek. Enjoy the open fields and pinewoods by riding the 4.4-mile Turkey Creek Loop Trail. The 1.4 Sanchez Trail follows the flow of the Turkey Creek and the .5 mile Sidewinder Trail winds around wet-weather ponds and along slopes.   Both of these trails interconnect to the Turkey Creek Loop Trail.

To access the following trails, ride approximately 2 miles of the Turkey Creek Loop Trail and cross Turkey Creek.  The 2.2 mile Piney Woods Trail traverses through some of the pinelands in the park.  The Hidden Pond Trail is a 1.1 mile trail that goes by Hidden Pond, a seasonal pond, before rejoining Piney Woods Trail.  The Cypress Knee Trail is a 2.1 mile trail that skirts a small wetland where cypress knees may be seen.

Access these wonderful trails from the equestrian trailhead located at 13201 Progress Blvd., off of U.S. 441, south of Alachua.

Horse drawn carriages are welcome on both the Cellon and Turkey Creek trails. The two single-track trails (Sanchez and Sidewinder) are not wide enough to accommodate carriages. Please call at least one day in advance to obtain entrance to the carriage gate. On Monday through Friday call 386-462-7905. If calling on Saturday or Sunday, 352-955-2008.

The mountain bike and equestrian trails are separate trails and meet only at well-cleared intersections.  Pets, except for horses, are not allowed. Horses are not available for rent at the park. All horse riders are required to have proof of negative Coggins on their person or in their saddlebag. An additional eight-mile equestrian trail is currently under development. Check back for updates on its progress and anticipated opening.

Please extend to others the same courtesy you would wish to be given by refraining from using the trails other than for their intended use; horse riders should not use bike trails.  When meeting at trail intersections, bike riders should yield to horse riders.
