Forest Hill Trail

The Forest Hill Horse Trail is located on provincially owned land in the Forest Hill Wildlife Management Area. The trail was developed to provide a safe place for Islanders and visitors to ride. The wildlife management area is used for other activities such as fishing, hiking, and hunting. The trailhead for the Forest Hill Horse Trail is on property adjacent to the wildlife management area and owned by Island Horse Council. It has parking space for trucks with trailers, and a corral. The trailhead is connected directly to the Forest Hill Horse Trail. There are approximately 6km of trail in the three loops that can be ridden in either direction. The majority of the trail is reclaimed wood roads that provide a solid surface most of the year. For more information, visit
