First Day Horseback Ride

At Lee State Park

Happy New Year! Start your New Year's resolution out on the right hoof and hit a State Park equestrian trail with a park ranger! This horse ride will be led by a mounted park ranger and provides the riders with the chance to view the wonders of South Carolina’s sandy coastal plain as well as the wetlands along the beautiful Lynches River. As riders follow the sandy trails through enormous longleaf pines, they will see a variety of different species of plants and animals. White-tailed deer are common. Along the Loop Road, riders will parallel the Lynches River, seeing many wetland species of plant and animal like river oats and the colorful wood duck. Giddy up and join us!
