Headless Horseman Twilight Horseback Trail Ride and Bonfire

NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!  BEWARE!  TONIGHT'S VILLIAN TOOK OUT ICHABOD CRANE - & YOU CAN BE NEXT!

It's the Halloween Season!  The time where things we ordinarily enjoy become infested with spirits and scary legends.  

Tonight, we leave the comfort of modern development and traffic behind and travel back to the days of legends where the colonies on a horseback trail ride through the unspoiled rolling hills and streamsm -  all the time in fear of the Headless Horseman!

Through 8,000 acres of picturesque parkland, this evening's trails run alongside flowing streams and cliffs overlooking the woodlands and offer an abundance of flora and fauna. Listen to the natural music of waterfalls and water flows over rocky streambeds mixed with the gentle sounds of hooves upon the ground. Autumn into winter is a beautiful time to enjoy the natural beauty as Mother Nature begins to sleep. 

After our 1-hour journey, relax and enjoy a warming Halloween style  bonfire with coffee, hot chocolate, candy,  and s'mores. Alchohol will not be served, but feel free to bring your own.
