Cody Horse Camp, north of Mt. Adams, provides access to the 26-mile Klickitat Trail and other nearby trails. The horse camp is in the valley carved by the Cispus River, so all the riding here involves some elevation gain. This camp is lightly used, and the riding here may be a bit too challenging for some. But if you’re looking for beauty and solitude, you’ll find it here.
Cody Horse Camp provides access to over 50 miles of trails, including: a fun loop ride to Midway Meadows Loop, which takes you to a historic guard station.
While you're at Midway Meadows, your horse can enjoy a delicious lunch break.
You can ride the Spring Creek Loop, a fun and very pretty loop on the Spring Creek and High Lakes Trails that will take you past Keenes Horse Camp.
You can cross the Cispus River and ride to panoramic viewpoints showcasing the Goat Rocks and Mt. Adams from the flanks of Elk Peak.
And you can ride a long loop with beautiful mountain views on the Klickitat Trail and the PCT. The trails offer a lot to like at Cody Horse Camp.
Cody Horse Camp has 16 sites with highlines and cables, picnic tables, and fire rings. It also features a vault toilet, manure bins, and potable water from a hand pump that also fills a stock water trough, plus day-use parking for 4-5 trailers.
