Upper Horse Details

Official multi-use bidirectional gravel trail. The trail is open year-round to bikes as well as equestrian and pedestrian traffic. Bikes are required by OSU to yield to all other users.

The upper half of the trail is a series of switchbacks through relatively open managed forestland and the bottom half is somewhat straight and through more closely-spaced dark swaths of trees.

Trail is often covered with wet, decomposing, crushed organic slurry that make it sloppy to ride in winter, but the gravel tread will hold up to the abuse and your tires will do no harm to anything other than making you and your bike a mess. Be aware of other forest users at all times; as this and Dan's Trail can be crowded.

Access Info

Access the bottom of this trail at the junction with Lower Horse and Road 612.4. A short spur also leads off the middle of this trail to Road 610, which heads north to the Saddle and south to Jackson Creek. Access the top of this trail at Patterson Road, between Dimple Hill and the Saddle.

Wet but less organic slop due to leafblower work compared to other trails.

Clear and riding well. Organics (leaves, needle cast, debris) have been blown off the trail by OSU. Very nice.
