Horse Trough splits off of the Bench Trail just after the entrance. It generally parallels the Bench Trail but instead of descending, stays more level and ends on Riverview Extension Trail. You can continue riding on Horse Trough trail to access Roller Coaster and Concrete Block. The trail is not very technical but is twisting and narrow in places. It can be ridden either direction.
