Hercules Glades Wilderness Area and Horse Riding trails Near Springfield MO
32 trail miles in Bradleyville, Missouri
I haven’t rode these horse riding trails, just walked them. Hercules Glades Wilderness Area was absolutely breath taking, even though we were in a mild drought (this pic should have been the Falls, but the water was too low). The trails are rocky, and hoof protection will be needed for most horses.
Trailering in to Hercules Glades Missouri trail system will be difficult as the road gets very narrow and steep, and the parking area isn’t very large (at least not the parking area I visited – I followed Google Maps, and it didn’t seem like a public thoroughfare!). However, it’s worth the trouble – it’s a beautiful set of horse riding trails!
