Riding in Franklin County’s majestic mountains on the back of a horse is absolutely breath taking. Franklin County has many options for riding one of the most popular is Caledonia State Park: Michaux Forest which is part of the Appalachian Trail. A few other locations such as Steel House Hollow in which you can see across several valleys and Tea Berry trail (a part of South Mountain).
Located close to Franklin County is Gettysburg which gives a historical riding experience. It’s just magical being able to ride right through Pickets Charge, Devils Den and close to the Eisenhower farm. Another option is Rail-for-trails which was created to have a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines. This is a very popular riding trail. There are many versatile trails in Franklin County for you to choose from.
My family and I have ridden in many other locations but Franklin County is one of our favorites simply because of the beautiful mountain trials and scenery.
