Through matching funds provided by Great Parks of Hamilton County and numerous partners providing financial support, multiple new sections of horse trail were built this summer at Miami Whitewater Forest with plans underway for more horse trail construction next year.Over 6,973 linear feet (1.32 miles) of new horse trail were built this summer in Miami Whitewater Forest by trail designer and builder Bill Reed of Managed Adventure Systems. Once healed in, newly constructed horse trail will be used to replace old, eroded, and chronically wet horse trail sections planned for reforestation. In addition to the new horse trail construction, approximately 12,000 feet of proposed new horse trail was surveyed, designed, and GPS mapped. Progressing as funding allows, the proposed new horse trail construction is planned for 2014.Sharing the vision and financially supporting the mission of keeping horse trails open and available for public riding in the Great Parks of Hamilton County are the American Quarter Horse Association, Diamond Oaks High School, Future Farmers of America Student Chapter, Great Parks of Hamilton County, Hamilton County Farm Bureau, Hamilton County Parks Foundation, Horsemen’s Corral Magazine, Miamitown Pet Hospital, Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation, Ohio Horseman’s Council, Tractor Supply Company, and many, many, many greater Cincinnati horse enthusiasts.
