Long Cane Horse Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Long Cane Horse Trail offers close to 25 miles of bridle path. Horses and mountain bikers don’t always mix, but if you’ve often ridden Parson’s Motorcycle Trail, a little exploring might be just the thing. Be forewarned, the hardpacked clay singletrack is often interrupted by stretches of muddy, churned-up, and overgrown trail, but I think this scenic adventure merits a trip.
Part of this ride traverses Long Cane Scenic Area, and while the riding is tough going at times, the beauty of the floodplain makes it well worth the effort. Long Cane Creek, which you cross once in the scenic area and again on paved State Route 33, takes its name from the bamboo-like plant growing along the banks. Other highlights include hardwood coves, old growth, and a couple of state record–size trees. This ride, basically the southern half of the horse trail, uses the Connector Trail to create a 16.1-mile loop. Fell Hunt Camp serves as the trailhead, but you can also pick up the trail at Parson’s Mountain Lake Recreation Area. Tread: Singletrack with 1.2 miles on 0.7 mile on pavement."
