Richards-Raven Equestrian Trail

Sam Houston National Forest 


Due to excessive rains and damage to Sam Houston trails and roads, the US Forest Service has closed all access. The area is expected to remain closed for a minimum of six months.   

Join us for a day ride at this amazing trail system in the Sam Houston National Forest. This is developed and maintained by dedicated volunteers.  Come enjoy bridges and trails through the thick forest with miles of riding trails.

Coach House Horse camp is a private facility across from the parking lot for  overnight camping. There is no overnighting at the trailhead. 

We will ride at 9:30am, with a Richards-Raven volunteer in the lead. The kiosk has trail and map information. There is no fee to park or ride trails. Suggested donation of $20 to assist in covering liability insurance.  Current Coggins is required, no dogs on the trail.  There is no water on this trail.
