This trail is actually a series of loops that range through hills and streams on the east side of Lake Lowndes at Lake Lowndes State Park. Though it is officially called a horse and bike trail, truth is it is only lightly used by both groups. Don’t expect this to be a muddy track where you are dodging horse poop every other step.
This trail is underutilized by all groups who use it—equestrians, mountain bikers, and hikers. You may find some trail intersections confusing, so on your first trip here,
don’t be surprised if you get lost. However, the worst-case scenario is getting a little extra mileage in while getting out. The trail is blazed in orange. At first you will follow a closed roadbed, passing over Ellis Creek, which feeds Lake Lowndes.
