The Horse Trail can be accessed by either riding from Foy's Lake Road, eventually turning to a singletrack climb with switchbacks after it passes the sledding hill. Or by riding out either Family Trail or the Direct Route and neglecting the signed turns that send those trails up the hill.
If you enter from Foy's Lake Road, the trail really starts with four steeper switchbacks to gain a little vertical status. These aren't anything special but are tough if you aren't warmed up. Once you hit the top you'll connect with what started as the Direct Route. Stay left and get through another 50m of climbing and you'll pass the Horse Trail/Plum Creek connector on your right. At this point, stay left and cruise over some nice flowing trail.
This is a short descent followed by short climb until the trail hangs a right and then a left as it winds around some private property.
