The 3 miles of trails at Mountain View Recreation Area wind their way through a mature, mixed hardwood forest. The
trails are wide enough for side-by-side riding and offer several different loop options. Be aware that these trails
are used for hiking as well as equestrian riding in the summer months and cross-country skiing in the winter. Separate
single-track mountain bike/snowshoe trails are also being developed within the recreation area as well and will cross
the hiking/equestrian/x-c skiing trails at various locations. Please do not ride horses on the trails after they have
been groomed for cross-country skiing; usually beginning in early to mid-December. Horses are also not allowed on the
single-track trails. Parking for 10-15 vehicles is located along Tower Road.
