Yankee Springs Equestrian trails are mainly sandy. There are a few rocky parts, but nothing that keeps us away! This is the local's home away from home.
The 9 Mile: Great for any rider. This trail system is mainly sandy with a few rocky spots. It does have hills and some rougher terrain, but our riders of all ages and skill levels love the scenery!
The 6 Mile: We would rate this trail great for any beginner rider. Minimal rocks and easily navigable terrain. You can cut your trip short by taking Duffy road back to camp.
The 4 Mile: This trail is known for it's more rocky terrain. It does have some steep hills but the scenes are WORTH IT! Find yourself on top of a high ridge looking down into the forest and you can sometimes see Gun Lake on a beautiful fall day when the leaves aren't so thick.
How are trails maintained?
YSTRA is a non-profit volunteer group.
Just like you, we are made up of working moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, friends, neighbors.... you name it!
We volunteer or time so our trails stay open.
Please consider donating to our efforts on our main page, or by contacting us and attending our next work bee.
Another way you can help- Bring a trash bag along with you when you ride. Pick up trash as you see it on the trails. Clear branches, or brush that has fallen onto trails making them impassible.
And as always- pack out what you pack in.
