Trail Overview

The Scott County Horse Association equestrian trails will begin at the Scott County Horse Park two miles west of the Town of Dungannon on State Route 65.

The proposed project will include approximately 6 miles of Equestrian trail located on rolling farmland that will provide access to the Chief Benges Scout Trail through the US Forest Service Clinch Ranger District. The goal is to access over 80 miles of  trails within the District (Scott and Wise Counties) for long distance riders.

The existing Scott County Horse Association Horse Park will serve as the trailhead. The Horse Association Park is a well-established equestrian destination, with two (2) horse rings; restrooms with potable water, sewer and power; ten (10) camping spaces; and telephone.
