Horse Trails

There are approximately 135 miles of trails open for horse riding on state-owned lands managed by the Division of Parks and Recreation, the Division of Fish and Wildlife, and the Forest Service. The All State Areas PDF covers equestrian trail information on lands managed by these agencies. Before you set out on a trail ride, it is recommended that you call the Park, Forest or Fish & Wildlife Area to learn of any seasonal restrictions that might affect trail use. Numbers for all management areas are listed on the table.

Most trails have multiple uses requiring horse riders to share the trail with other trail users. On shared-use trails, you may encounter hikers or even off-road bicyclists. While riding, you can expect to experience a variety of environments and landscapes in lush forests, open beaches or open fields. Respect and help to protect Delaware's natural resources.
