Minnesota has one of the top ten highest populations of horses in the country. If you have a horse and are looking for a place to ride, we have miles of scenic trails to choose from. Our natural woodlands and grasslands provide a beautiful setting for riders. You can even enjoy group horse camping in some of our parks!
When the summer horse trails are closed for the season, you can take advantage of winter riding opportunities at Murphy-Hanrehan and Crow-Hassan Park Reserves. See park pages for winter trail maps.

Park Alert for Horse Trail Users
Horse trails will open this spring on a park-by park basis as staff determines that conditions are safe and trail surfaces are firm enough to bear use without unacceptable damage. Horse owners should keep in mind that in the past few weeks there have been several confirmed cases of neurologic EHV-1 in the metro area. We encourage you to check with your equine veterinarian for recommendations about protecting your horses from this virus.
