Trail Report: Yankeetown/Marshall Run 235

March 19, 2018

Yesterday was gorgeous so Carol Ann and I slipped out for a quick spin at Yankeetown. Yankeetown is the name of the road. There is a circle at the end, paved, that can be parked around the edge of. I usually reserve this one for when the fire roads are a little rough in the winter but that didn’t really happen this year.

The fire road entrance is 235 Marshall Run and is just a few yards up the road from the parking. Cars and trucks can drive onto this fire road and park farther down it but it’s not as hospitable for horse trailers and the added bit of the ride is nice addition.

I completely forgot to run my tracker but the loop is about 12 miles I think. Maybe a little less. Quite a. I’ve ride, open easy fire road in, behind a gate, over some creeks, some closed fire roads, some forest trails. Some climb up and some descent down. A nice variety of footing.

The trail was nice and clear, it’s a very well maintained loop, thank you trail workers. I rode in a t-shirt. We got in some good trotting and it was just lovely.

I didn’t remember to take photos other than one after I got Simon off the trailer and before I climbed on.

The games season is about to blow up and trail riding is about to get harder to fit in.

      This is Simon my usual trail pony. You usually get the “between the ears” view of him. I have had him for about 7 years.
