County officials are welcoming residents to a horseback ride during Barger’s Trail Blazers ride on Sunday, November 12, led by Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger and co-sponsored by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.
This trail ride is set to take place at the Castaic Lake staging area, located at 32132 Castaic Lake Drive in Castaic, and Barger, who represents the 5th District, will host the event beginning with a pancake breakfast at 7 a.m., to be followed by the trail ride at 9 a.m, according to officials.
Non-riders are welcome, and riders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Only service animals are welcome, and no stallions are allowed, which will be strictly enforced. Horse rentals are available.
The ride will last approximately 3.5 hours, and includes rest stops and refreshment breaks. It will be traveled in single file through a combination of rolling hills, as well as minimally steep and sloping hills. The ride will end with a barbeque lunch and live country-western music.
The purpose of Barger’s Trail Blazers ride is to promote public awareness about Los Angeles County’s system of more than 200 miles of multi-use trails, which feature connections to other municipal trail systems, and provides outdoor enthusiasts with a full range of recreational opportunities, according to officials.
