Lake Iowa Park Equestrian Trail is OPEN

The Lake Ridge Equestrian Trail is open for Easter weekend. The parking area in Lake Iowa Park by the silt pond still has wet and muddy areas. Please use caution and check BEFORE entering. The parking area in Pheasant Ridge is accessible from H Ave, turn down Maple Drive.

One section of the trail is temporarily closed due to wet conditions.
If you come across mud on the trail, please ride straight through, do not go around! Braided trails are much more difficult to fix.

Thank you and happy riding!
