    Does anyone know if there are any horse riding trails that take people to places within the Croatan National Forest? We just moved here and I see that this forest is very large and I want to explore the area along with my kids. I guess to start out I am looking for thought on places to see in this area along with guided tours on horseback.

    I see a lot of stables along Hwy 24 so I know someone has to do tours.
