Midwest Trail Ride

1264 Hunters Creek Rd., Norman, Indiana

Admin: Kim Humphries

Ride the Hoosier National Forest in beautiful Southern Indiana! 108 Campsites, 13 Cabins, 365 Horse Stalls, 250 X 140 outdoor arena. Midwest is sandwiched between two trail systems. They are directly connected to the Hickory Ridge Trail System. They also have 2 hours of riding on private trails (small loop trails) from out of camp if you do not want to buy a trail tag or are "short riders." For "long riders," Ride the Wilderness Area to the north, those trails are somewhat more challenging then the Hickory Ridge trail system.
