Would like to know about public horseback riding options in these parts (i.e. guided rides 2-3 hours in length). Any suggestions?
I might be a bit late, but there was a place called the Lazy J (or L?) ranch when I was a kid that did horse rides...
Hmmm, I asked my brother who lives in the area and he's not aware of any guided horse tours in Arcata Forest (But we are not acquainted with local horse folks.) You might try searching in Orick (thirty-some miles north of Arcata) as there may be some tours on horse trails in the Redwood National and State Parks.
Get quick answers from Arcata Community Forest staff and past visitors.
