Overview

Pine Ridge Equestrian Trail was established by the District, volunteers of the Southern Trail Riders Association, and other local saddle clubs in order to designate around 45 miles of trails in the Econfina Water Management Area.

The connected trails are a visual delight for riders. The area contains as many as 50 lakes of various sizes (from one acre to 600 acres). More than 400 flora species have been identified in the area.

Riders are reminded to stay on marked trails and to avoid disturbing vegetation on slopes, lake shores, and stream banks. The Northwest Florida Water Management District manages this land to protect water resources. The District has planted millions of longleaf pine trees in the area to help restore the lands to their original condition. The sandhill area is an important recharge area for Econfina Creek.

 Visitors can park at Pine Ridge Campground (off Greenhead Road) and ride along Rolling Pines Connector, across State Road 20 to Wolf Pond Equestrian Trail

This campground offers eight campsites for use by reservation only with picnic tables, fire rings, pedestal grills, a portable toilet, and space for your horses and trailers. It has approximately 15 miles of horse trails.

Day use is allowed with specified parking outside the campsite areas.
