Welcome to the Stone Church Horse Trail and Campground. Named for the skeletal ruins of an old stone church nearby, this horse trail system provides 21 miles of scenic riding. The horse trail winds through the rolling hills of the Wayne National Forest. The trails will lead you through a variety of vegetation: open fields, brushland, mature forest, and new forest. Along the way, you may glimpse wildlife, and will recognize the influence of humans, both now and in the past. You will also pass many of our land management activities.
The former Stone Church Trailhead is for also open for camping and day use. This trailhead is open for camping from April 15 through December 15. The site has a porta-john and trash cans available. There is no charge for camping in the old Stone Church campground.
The recently completed campground offers camping for horseback riders which provides facilities designed for horses and horse trailers.
Ten sites are provided, each with a 45'' long by 15'' wide parking space. Two sites are fully accessible for people with disabilities.
