Mountain Horse Camping & Trails

Iron Mountain Horse Camp is located in the beautiful Jefferson National Forest part of the Mount Rogers Rec. Area. You can ride right out the gate onto the trails that will take you from an hour ride to days of riding, whatever you desire. There is access to trails from three directions from camp. 

You can ride the Virginia Highland Horse Trail, Divide Trail, Dry Gap Run, Iron Mountain Horse Trail, Horse Heaven Loop, Yellow Branch, East Fork Trail and many, many more.

Or ride through Raven Cliff, Cripple Creek, Cole’s Branch, Devils Den, also located near The New River Trail, and hundreds of miles of beautiful scenic trails.

We highly recommend shoes on your horses or boots. There is a very good farrier 3 miles from camp if you happen to loose a shoe or need shoes. Brother Moore, the farrier, has 40+ years of experience.
