This is the year to attend the Cook Forest Area Scenic Trail Ride. We are the horse lovers paradise. We are continually updating our facility, clearing new trails, and serving you the best down home cooking in the East. We keep the food good and plentiful with variety and quality. Our goal is to keep you happy, satisfied, able to relax and enjoy the best in horseback riding. You don't have to worry about anything. Sit back and let us do all the work for you.

Bring your horse or rent one from us and ride through the remote areas of Northwestern Pennsylvania on the Southern borders of the Allegheny National Forest. You will be watering your horse in cool spring fed streams.

Each day we will cover different trails among which will be scenic woodlands, crystal clear streams and backwoods trails.

When riding expect to see some wildlife. Bear, turkey, deer and many other forms of wildlife roam the hillsides on a regular basis.

Don't forget your camera for these special occasions of wildlife experiences and picturesque landscapes.

We will continue to mark even more trails for your convenience.  We also will make up trail maps for your usage!

For years trailriders from across the world have enjoyed the diversity of woodland trails and logging roads composing the 200 miles of cleared paths for horse people to utilize at their stay here in beautiful northwestern Pennsylvania.  Many choose to ride on their own while others prefer to be guided.  We have developed trail maps and marked trails.
