It is a perfect time of year to be out trail riding. Share your favourite trails with other trail riders. We are always looking for somewhere new to go. I regularly ride on the Railway Heritage Trail (week days are best as very busy with walkers and bikes on the weekend) and the Kepp Track. Both are safe and if you carry a canvas bucket with you, you can access water on the way.

Brigadoon Bridle Trails are also beautiful at this time of year and with the recent rain, the ground is not so hard up in the hills.

I rode back up from Greenmount yesterday pm.and was accompanied part of the way by 2 pit bull crosses,a bitch and a dog who heeled my horse closrly.I thanj the powers that be that the horse is cool around dogs and showed no fear as I am sure they were just waiting for an excuse to latch on.
I must say that on my first trip down I too got hopelessly lost and rang the ranger frequently.2 very nice fella's came out and found me, went ahead and tied toilet roll to trees at intersecting trails to get me back on track they were brilliant.

I have also ridden in there with Frances Overheu some time ago and ended up coming down on the streets of Swan View as we couldn't find the markers and got lost then a very rude ranger went crazy at us and was no help at all!

Are there any riders out there that have a permit to ride the bridle trail that is supposed to be around John Forest National park?
I paid for a permit and was disappointed to find that The trail that is supposed to get me from Parkerville to Swanview is not marked and parts of it run dangerously close to the highway.
Perhaps I am on the wrong track does anyone know a safe way down the hill?
