Horse Around on the Trails at Don Carter State Park
Walking is nice, especially on trails through forests by a lake. If you’re
an eqesterian equstraian someone who likes to ride horses, Don Carter State Park invites you to come and horse around on their brand-new riding trails through pretty woods by Lake Lanier.
Don Carter State Park — Georgia’s best-kept secret — officially opened their new horse and/or equestrian trails on Tuesday, July 17, 2018.
Once you pay $5.00 to park your vehicle and/or horse, there is no charge to ride into the sunset … until sunset.
Please Note: There is no truth to the rumor that must be able to spell
eqwesternyan eqwesternian EQUESTRIAN in order to saddle up and trot away. Thank you.
Hoof it through 12.5 miles of lovely trails with your steed. You’ll have four main loops and several connector trails to follow. You cannot possibly get lost. But if you do? Just blame it on your horse.
The kind folks at Don Carter State Park will give you a temporary map to where you can horse around daily from 7:00 AM until dusk.
Decades ago, my friendly Boy Scout leader played a trick on me at a group camping event. He asked me to check other campsites for a “smoke shifter” when our campfire was too smoky.
For all I know, this statement from the park is as bogus as smoke shifters, but I’ll go along with it.
Please be prepared to present your coggins paper work.
Giddy-up and hop along the horse trails at Don Carter State Park!
One final note: If you are walking on the horse trails, please watch where you step.
