Trails, Campgrounds and Overnight Hosts

Croatan National Forest
New Burn: PH 919-638-5628

Great Smokey National Park
The Smokies are some of the most rugged terrain on the east coast. Trails are everything from easy rides along trout streams to steep climbs to mountain tops. Make sure your horse is well conditioned. Most trails in the Smokies are open to horses, but make sure to get a current trail map to make sure the trail you are on is not restricted, most trails aren't marked horse or non-horse. Camping with horses (and trailers) are only allowed at developed horse camps within the park. Reservations are required and are available up to 5 months in advance by calling (800) 365-2267 between 10am and 10pm EST. Horses stay in communial hitchracks and are not allowed in your camp.

I've stayed at Cataloochee and Big Creek.
Cataloochee is an early settlement in a remote valley with historic buildings and wildlife like turkey, deer, wild boar, bear and newly reintorduced elk. It has primative camping with pit toilets, but beauitful rides. One of the best ride is a loop including Little Cataloochee trail that passes by old rock walls, foundations, a cabin and church.
Big Creek has flush toilets in the campground. Best ride is a steep ride that takes you to a fire tower on top of Mount Sterling. There are fantastic views on the rare clear day.
I've seen the campground at Tow String. It's just a wide place at the end of a road.

Turkey Pen Horse Trails
Turkey Pen Horse Trails, NC - In the heart of the NC mountains, this part of the National Forest is absolutely gorgeous!! Mountain laurel, rhododendron, fire pink, and river crossings galore - absolutely quiet as church except for the birds!!! However, like all beautiful places, the reason it is still pretty is.... it is HARD to GET TO!!! The Mills River community horsepeople opened up the parking area, but it is nigh impossible to turn around in if more than 3 horse trailers or 6 mountain biker's cars are already there, and there is no place to turn around on the access road, much less back up!!! Advice: you can park at the bottom on the highway and ride one mile up the gravel road to the trail-head.

Added Note: National Geographic / Trails Illustrated has printed a topo map of the area, "Pisgah Ranger District, Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina, USA", # 780, Revised in 1998. ISBN: 1-56695-037-6.
It is the best map of the area I've ever seen and shows all the trails in the area color coded for different uses.

(A misnomer - USFS calls this South Mills River - Turkey Pen is just one trail head and the worst). In Pisgah National Forest. 34 miles of trails developed by a group called the Pisgah Trailblazers. The trails were originally narrow gauge railroad beds used when George Vanderbilt (of Biltmore Estate fame) owned and logged the land, and created the first forestry school in America near Brevard.
The site of the School is now called the Cradle of Forestry. (The Blue Ridge Parkway from US 191 to Mount Pisgah is built on Mr. Vanderbilt's carriage road to his hunting lodge at Buck Spring Gap near Mt. Pisgah.) The trails are wonderful rides along mountain streams, with many stream crossings. Primative camping is available at another trail head, Wolf Ford, off US 276 near Pink Beds.

Nearby is North Mills River Trail and Bent Creek. North Mills River has 15 miles of trails, more logging roads, and some primative camping sites. Bent Creek has probably 10 miles of trails open to horses, but is day use only. Many mountain bikes use the North Mills River and Bent Creek trails.

The three groups of trails were at one time connected to the Biltmore Estate. I've read a historical account of some forestry students who spent a three day weekend riding from the school to the estate, past Asheville and all the way to Mount Mitchell and back.
I'd like to try that some day.

Biltmore Estate Equestrian Center
BILTMORE Riding Trails, NC - Did you know that part of the estate of the Vanderbilts is still accessible to riders? Imagine "The Sound of Music" on horseback as you canter across the big pasture hill thru the marguirites and daisys!!
You can bring your carriage as well, many of the roads and trails are fine for that. Hunting is only allowed one week a year, and no riders are allowed out during that week. On the upper pastures overlooking the Biltmore House, there are cross-country jumps, and many of the trails have optional jumps for your enjoyment. You will ride along the edge of the beautiful French Broad River and criss-cross safely under the Blue Ridge Parkway and Interstate 26.
Update-- 2008 Biltmore trails: You must now buy an annual trail pass (call for current prices).
This includes individuals and members of horse clubs/organizations.

Additional Information:
There's a wild west town in the middle of the 75 miles of trails. The 2000 census lists Love Valley as the smallest town in North Carolina. It's also the cowboy capital of North Carolina. It's the only place I've ever been able to tie my horse to a hitching post and go into a saloon for a beer. They have a rodeo arena, several tack shops and a blacksmith. Campgrounds are often hard to tell from the average front yard, but there's always room to squeeze in another truck and horse trailer. The place is wide open every weekend from Easter to Halloween. You'll either love it or hate it.

Tsali Recreation Area
Tsali is on a lot of top ten lists as one of the best mountain bike rides in the country. The trails are also open to horseback riders on an alternating day basis. We rode the left loop trail on the day we went out there. The trail is almost level; a rare thing in the mountains; and follows the bank of Fontana Lake.
The views are wonderful, with the lake below and a ring of mountains in the distance. The trail was very well maintained. There are four main trails; Left Loop is the longest 11.9 miles. Right Loop is 11 miles, Mouse Branch is 9 miles, and Thompson Loop is 7.7 miles. Bikes are allowed on a trail one day and horses the next so you would have to come back two days in a row to have access to all the trails.
The horse trailer parking lot is good for several trailers but a little tight for turning around it.
The road in is steep, but paved. The campground is for mountain bikers and no horses are allowed.
Camping is allowed in Nantahala National Forest, but not close to the trails.
