Five Brooks Horse Camp’s Activities and Services:

If you don't have a horse or have friend's without horses but still want to go camping, Five Brooks offers guided trail rides that offer an excellent opportunity to explore the Park and take in its splendor. There are rides available for 1, 2, 3, and 6 hours. A trail ride is subject to the conditions of the weather and the trail.
