Tar Hollow State Forest Horse Camp Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Tar Hollow State Forest’s 16,000 acres are the result of a failed experiment. In the 1930s the government relocated farm families here, hoping they could tame the land and prosper. It didn’t work. The would-be farmers couldn’t make a go of it, the land was leased back to the state, and in time became the state forest. Visitors today can find lots to do here, though. Tar Hollow is home to a 26-mile network of bridle trails, all of them in the southern half of the forest. The northern half has 22 miles of hiking trails. In between and all around are 17 miles of paved roads and 14 miles of gravel ones, enough to offer up opportunities for scenic drives."
