Park Information: Amenities at the relatively new Carvers Creek State Park have centered on Long Valley Farm, the historic retreat of a Rockefeller family member, as the park continues to develop recreation opportunities. The farm continues to offer scenic, contemplative hiking, biking and horse riding through longleaf pine forests. A long-range master plan includes varied recreation proposals for the park that encompasses more than 4,000 acres. Trails range in distance from .5 miles to 4 miles.
The Sandhills parking lot and some sections of the multi-use trails have crush-and-run rock where trail tends to be wet, so boots or shoes are suggested for horses.
Please do not take your horse off-trail as this can damage the fragile longleaf pine ecosystem and habitats.
