There are approx. 15 miles of trails - some easy roads; some wooded with small hills, ditches & bridge crossings. easy to moderate level. We are looking at adding several miles of new trails, which will be a little more challenging. We are also looking into adding a nice meal for the ride. The ride is on a private farm and, so, there are no facilities available other than a porta-potty. Since we are in the early planning stages, we have not yet set the price. -- Hope to see you there!

Tsali Trail & Campground NC

Tsali Trail is named after a Cherokee Indian who gave his life so that a remnant of his people might stay in the Great Smoky Mountains. He, his oldest son, and his brother-in-law were executed then buried just outside the stockade in Bushnell, a community that is now covered by the Fontana Lake waters. Tsali's wife and his youngest son returned to their mountain home where they and  the 1000 plus Indians who had hidden in the mountains were finally left alone. Their descendants now reside on the 57,000-acre Qualla Boundary better known as Cherokee, NC.

41 campsites are available at the Tsali campground along with showers and flush toilets. You may also backpack and camp anywhere on forest land, except in designated wildlife fields and in trailhead parking lots. Tsali also offers a free boat launch site and ample parking is available.

Tsali has 39 miles of trails in a four loop system that wind around the Fontana Lake and through US Forest Service Land. Bikers, hikers, and horseback riders all enjoy the trails and the breath-taking views they have to offer.  Tsali Recreation Area requires a $2 per bike or horse trail use fee, or you may pay $15 for a season pass. http://www.westernncattractions.com/tsali.htm

Great Smokey National Park NC, VA, SC

The Smokies are some of the most rugged terrain on the east coast. Trails are everything from easy rides along trout streams to steep climbs to mountain tops. Make sure your horse is well conditioned. Most trails in the Smokies are open to horses, but make sure to get a current trail map to make sure the trail you are on is not restricted, most trails aren't marked horse or non-horse. Camping with horses (and trailers) are only allowed at developed horse camps within the park. Reservations are required and are available up to 5 months in advance by calling (800) 365-2267 between 10am and 10pm EST. Horses stay in communal hitch racks and are not allowed in your camp.

Turkey Pen Horse Trails NC

Turkey Pen Horse Trails, NC - In the heart of the NC mountains, this part of the National Forest is absolutely gorgeous!! Mountain laurel, rhododendron, fire pink, and river crossings galore - absolutely quiet as church except for the birds!!! However, like all beautiful places, the reason it is still pretty is.... it is HARD to GET TO!!! The Mills River community horse people opened up the parking area, but it is nigh impossible to turn around in if more than 3 horse trailers or 6 mountain biker's cars are already there, and there is no place to turn around on the access road, much less back up!!! Advice: you can park at the bottom on the highway and ride one mile up the gravel road to the trail-head.

Added Note: National Geographic / Trails Illustrated has printed a topo map of the area, "Pisgah Ranger District, Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina, USA", # 780, Revised in 1998. ISBN: 1-56695-037-6.

Love Valley NC

Love Valley has about 75 miles of trails with various creeks and small ponds. All trails are marked fairly well. Has various places around town to board horses in either slip stalls outside or in barn stalls with camping right outside in the yard area. Some places have hot showers and bathroom facilities. In town on main street only horses, mules, or horse/mule drawn carts allowed.
Directions: Take I-77 to I-40 West tonc-115 north for about 10 miles then left on Mountain View Church Road then follow signs.

There's a wild west town in the middle of the 75 miles of trails. The 2000 census lists Love Valley as the smallest town in North Carolina. It's also the cowboy capital of North Carolina. It's the only place I've ever been able to tie my horse to a hitching post and go into a saloon for a beer. They have a rodeo arena, several tack shops and a blacksmith. Campgrounds are often hard to tell from the average front yard, but there's always room to squeeze in another truck and horse trailer. The place is wide open every weekend from Easter to Halloween. You'll either love it or hate it.
