If you want to experience the joys of riding in the Ochocos but don’t live nearby, you’ll find pleasant horse camping accommodations at Dry Creek Horse Camp. The camp has 6 sites with corrals, picnic tables, and fire rings, plus a toilet and a manure bin. Water is available from nearby Dry Creek in early summer, but by midsummer the creek lives up to its name so you’ll need to bring your own stock water.
This 7- to 9-mile ride originates at Dry Creek Horse Camp and climbs a nearby ridge. On the trail you’ll ride through beautiful stands of ponderosa pines and grand firs, see the tumble-down remains of several structures at Kidnap Springs, and take in expansive views from the top of the ridge.
