    Default Trails in Harpers Ferry Nat'l Park WV or near?

    This park is pretty close to me. I know there are hiking trails but can't find info as to whether horses are allowed. Does anyone know if there are bridle trails there, or other parks near there (besides C & O canal)? Thanks!

    Default wv trails

    There's a list of trails in WVa here;
    http://www.wvequineassoc.org/wiki/in...cy_Trails_List

    There may be a WV horse council with local chapters (usually by county) that get together and ride. Usually these rides are open to all. The websites that i found for WV horse council were not working. maybe a more extensive search would find an up to date site.

    The Blue Ridge Center is right off of Harpers Ferry Road in Neersville/Purcellville, VA. I live in Harpers Ferry and it takes me about 10-15mins to get there

    And a great way to check out BRCES is to register for the August 7th benefit ride there, hosted by USTR (see the other thread). Only USTR members can ride at BRCES. It's a fun club, and great trails!
