Does anyone know of a place where you can horse camp that has cabins for rent? Some friends from out of state want to visit and trail ride, but their trailer doesn't have living quarters.
Thanks!

I am interested in renting a manure spreader for a day if anyone has one available near my area? This winter kept my horses in one area and the harrow isn't going to cut it :) Please email me, thanks Shannon

The trail used to be called the Rails to Trails. It runs from Mackinaw to Alpena. The name was changed and I could be wrong, to North East State Trail.

when MTRA travels that trail they drag it afterwards to remove any droppings. Jan wants to know the officer's name. so do I.

N.E.S.T. is the North Eastern State Trail. It runs from Alpena to just south of Cheboygan where it joins the North Central State Trail that runs from Gaylord to Mackinaw. I spoke with MDNR officer, Paige Perry, this afternoon and she said her personal view is that horse drawn vehicles should be allowed on these trails because they are non-motorized, however, she will check with others and let me know tomorrow or Friday. I will post when I hear from her. Her main concern about horse drawn carts is that the trail will not be accessable once the posts are put back in at intersections. This will be happening soon. The posts are removed for the winter so snowmobiles have access to the trail but are installed in spring, summer and fall to keep motorized vehicles (cars) off the trail.

I live by the NEST (part of which is used on the S-T-S) and was told by the local DNR officer that horses and buggies can not go on the trail. I checked the posted signs and it says NO wheeled motorized vehicles but the officer said that means only people, bikes and horses. I don't know about anyone else's buggy but mine doesn't have a motor on it. Does NEST exclude buggies as the officer said?? He also told me that horses only and with buggies "Do damage to the trails and even the horses alone shouldn't be allowed". Could one of you very knowledgeable people tell me what statute (s) exclude buggies from the NEST? Thanks so much.

The signage specifically is speaking to ONLY wheeled vehicles with motors. The officer is interpreting it in a manner in which he chooses...not necessarily the correct manner. If mountain bikes, baby strollers, wheelchairs or wheeled vehicles of any kind are allowed without motors, then horse drawn carriages are also allowed. It says wheeled motorized vehicles because snowmobiles are allowed in the winter and they have no wheels. They are speaking to dirt bikes, quads, dune buggy type vehicles with the "wheeled motorized" verbage.
