      Horse Hill is a fantastic riding area filled with purpose built trails by bikers with a keen eye for a good time. There's the more mellow doubletrack of the Loop trail, all the way to the steep, nigh impossible, short suffering climbs of East Slope and Horse Hill Summit. Outer Ledges and Twister are some of the best; fun both down and up. Class 1 eMTB are permitted at Horse Hill. Enjoy
