Horseback Riding at Kentucky Lake
Land Between the Lakes offers over 70 miles of horse and wagon trails leading from the Wrangler’s Ranch. There is also an extensive network of old roads that lead to some of the most scenic spots at LBL. Wrangler’s Ranch borders Lake Barkley and beautiful Fords Bay on the east, and nestled between Laura Furnace Creek and Lick Creek on the west. It’s the only place at LBL designed for horseback riders and wagons.
Trails wind through rolling hills, forests filled with wildlife, and along the shores of Lake Barkley. Some of LBL’s most unique historic sites are found along the trail. Ride to the ruins of Laura Furnace, once a major iron producer, silent now for over 100 years. Deer, wild turkey, majestic hawks, and a shoreline teeming with waterfowl are just a few of the pleasures you’ll find along the trail!
