The Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area is a horseback rider's dream come true. There are over 180 miles of horse trails and several horse-friendly wilderness camp grounds throughout the park, one of the largest and wildest horse-friendly National Parks east of the Mississippi River. More information about the trails can be found at Horseback Riding at the Big South Fork.
We have a protected horse trailer parking spot on our lot, just off the main driveway to our cabin. And the new Yellowcliff Trail head is just a few hundred yards up the road. Yellowcliff-Salt Pine Ridge Trail is a wonderful half-day loop and connects to many of the most popular horse trails within the National Park.
Horse barns/stables are available for rent at the retreat (restricted/limited availability) or at nearby True West Campground.
If you don't have your own horse, Southeast Pack Trips offers custom group rides and is located less than three miles from Hemlock Bluff Cabin.
