The Forest & Additional Info

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 ribbon, paint on trees etc.

Barefoot friendly though there may be short gravelly sections that may bother very sensitive hooves.

Cell service: AT&T and Straight-talk work g. Verizon, Tmobile, Sprint etc get very little reception.



from Huntsville, travel on TX-19 approximately 20 miles to Trinity. In Trinity turn RIGHT on TX-94 (the 2nd traffic signal) towards Groveton. Travel 16 miles and TX-94 ends/merges with Hwy 287, turn LEFT towards Crockett. Go approximately 8 miles to Pennington and turn RIGHT on FM2781, there is a Spitfire Grill/Gas Station at the intersection. In Pennington make the RIGHT (just past the Church) and then a LEFT (just past Avery’s Welding & Feed) to stay on FM2781 towards Kennard. T bar S is then 6 miles ahead, just past Baker Springs, on the RIGHT.


From Crockett or Nacogdoches, travel on TX-7 to Kennard, turn SOUTH at the flashing yellow light which is FM2781. Go approximately 6 miles and T bar S is on the LEFT. 

If you accidentally pass T bar S, you can continue on to either Kennard or Pennington to get turned back around.
