dogs on leash
Horseback riding, hiking, and biking on some of the most scenic and diverse areas that Milford State Park has to offer.
overgrown, good for horses not much else
Pretty good beginner trail, but a lot of horse sign. In places the trail was pretty tore up and hard to walk on due to horses. It's a good trail for a day hike and there are other trails in the park to hike.
From the trail head the path climbs then drops several times. Thanks to the recent rain much of the path had DEEP ruts from washout. New horse trail riders and mountain bikers should be cautious the trail is narly! It does offer a challenge navigating through trees and up or down ravines. A fun trail but not for the faint of heart. Will do it again just not the first time back on trail with a three-dog;)
The information I used was from the Kansas Dept. of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism website. It got me to the trail head, but that was it. This trail seems to meander through the State Park for 8 miles, though I didn't feel like it was well-marked and I kept finding parts of it throughout the park. The 2.1 miles that I completed was good for mountain biking and horses. From the trail head (marked on this site), a right turn will just take you to the Tower Trail trail head. A left will take you on the loop that I completed, 2.1 miles. In general, I feel like this State Park is best for horses and boats.
