Horseback Riding

Price County offers many opportunities for the horseback riding enthusiast who likes to travel with their horse. There are several trails to choose from with a variety of settings and opportunities for either a short ride or lengthier trip with an overnight stop. Many of the trails are multiple-use trails which allow motorized vehicles, while some are strictly non-motorized.
