There are two trailheads for the Perry Lake Equestrian Trail. They are located at Horse Trail Campground (Perry State Park) and at Thompsonville Park (Corps of Engineers managed). Most of the trail is located within Perry State Park and Rock Creek Park. Nearly 25 miles of the trail extends in a continuous loop throughout the area. Development and maintenance of the trial has been accomplished through the efforts of several equestrian groups.
White or red flags serve to blaze the trail. Trails located in the State Park area are suitable for the average horse and rider. The trail located in adjacent Rock Creek Park covers extremely rough terrain and is recommended for experienced riders. Riders are encouraged to remember the following guidelines:
• Ride on the designated trail only • No motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail • Do not ride on paved roads or shoulders of paved roads • Horses are only allowed in the Horse Trail Campground and trailheads • Please dispose of animal waste in provided cans when using Thompsonville Park Trailhead
