Chief Shabbona Forest Preserve
Horseback riding is now permitted on the trail when it is dry enough. The park can handle up to 3 trailers. Horses can always be ridden on the gravel road, but check out the signs at each end of the trail head and it will indicate if riding is permitted or not. Everyone needs to be respectful of this opportunity we have, after 3 years of being shut off the trail, to keep our access. STAY ON THE TRAIL and if you encounter a wet area, do NOT go off the trail and go around - simply turn around and go back...it is too wet. We have received permission to help with the maintenance of the trail so if you encounter problems please note that on our Facebook page.
This is a big win for DCTRA!
