Welcome Riders!

We are the equestrian Friends group located at Sleepy Hollow State Park. Sleepy Hollow is located in eastern Clinton County, 6 miles south of M-21 and 9 miles east of US-127 on Price Rd. Use the Price Rd exit #91 on US-127.

There are 16.5 miles of well-marked equestrian trails that wander through grassland areas, meadows, pine, and hardwood stands, gently rolling hills and creeks. When you arrive, please sign in at the Welcome Box. The East and West trail loops can be ridden separately or combined as one large loop. The South Loop is cart accessible and runs along the Lake Ovid shoreline. The Island Trail is a multi-purpose trail located on the largest island in Lake Ovid. The trail is accessible by a 100ft long arched bridge! The Island Trail is too narrow for carts. There are also hitching rails and mounting blocks for your convenience.

Sleepy Hollow Trail Riders Association, Inc., a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization, was formed in 1997 to create and maintain these equestrian trails and staging area. Your membership fees and various fundraising events support the trails for public equestrian use. Your support of SHTRA is welcomed and shows that you care about these trails.
