The Piney Creek Horse Trail is a system of horse trails that meanders approximately 53 miles through the East Texas pineywoods in the Davy Crockett National Forest.
The trail is primitive; its path cleared through the forest which follows Forest Service roads, tram roads, pipeline right-of-ways, game trails, highways, and in places was established by clearing brush and trees through the forest. Primarily, it is on National Forest land, but there are crossings on private property and along public road right-of-ways. All users should show good trail manners so that private property owners will continue to allow horse passage across their land. In general, the route is well cleared and marked. Trailhead parking areas have been constructed at the main access points, and all road crossings are well signed.
Different colored triangular markers indicate the route. Trail markers are nailed to the trees, ignore any paint on trees etc.
Barefoot friendly though there may be short gravelly sections that may bother very sensitive hooves.
Cell service: AT&T, Verizon, Cricket and Straight-talk work great. Tmobile, Sprint etc get very little reception.
