If you’re staying at Mt. Adams Horse Camp, don’t miss the fun, easy Horsemen's Loop Trails around the campground. You can ride to the famous Big Tree, through the forest, beside lush meadows, and along the White Salmon River. Delightful!
The loops range from 2.7 to 5 miles and can easily be combined to create longer rides. The routes follow old logging roads and single-track trails with little elevation change.
No matter which loop(s) you choose, you’ll travel through a lovely Douglas-fir forest. The understory includes vine maples, big-leaf maples, and ocean spray bushes.
Most of the trails are unsigned, but the routes are well-established and easy to follow. So don’t miss these fun rides!
Mt. Adams is a lovely camp located just four miles from the town of Trout Lake. Mt. Adams towers above the camp, providing arguably the best view from any horse camp in the west. You’ll find 12 campsites with highlines, and all but one are pull-throughs. The camp offers a vault toilet, stock water, and a manure bin.
