Pine Grove Trails

Welcome To Pine Grove Trails!

Located five miles southwest of Leslie, Arkansas on Searcy County road 41, the community of Pine Grove is located just across the Van Buren county line. This is the home of Pine Grove Trails. Born the year of 2004 on 4,500 acres of pine covered hills and valleys and all privately owned, Pine Grove Trails is the brain child of Freddy Sutterfield and Dennis Wood, who have been friends and riding and camping companions for many years.

During their many outings on this beautiful mountain, it seemed one or the other would always bring up the idea of being able to share this breathtaking scenery and secluded wilderness with others. In the winter of 2003, while the two sat cooking on an open campfire with a light snow falling, they made a pledge to each other that by the spring of 2004 they would begin offering trail rides to the public.



Pine Grove Trails is equipped with:

  • Miles of horse riding trails
  • Lots of clean horse stalls
  • Clean RV sites, complete with water and electrical hookups
  • Western style bath house, complete with hot showers and clean restrooms
  • Plenty of clean, scenic rest areas along the trail

You see, Freddy and Dennis are just good ol’ country boys who go to great lengths to make their guests feel right at home, with their old fashioned natural Southern hospitality. Once you meet them, you’ll feel that you’ve known them all your life!

Freddy and Dennis have got a lot more up their sleeves here at Pine Grove Trail Rides in the future, but for now,come enjoy all the wonderful things they’ve already done. Miles of cleared, marked trails, some with steep inclines, traveling under high bluffs (called Indian bluffs) where artifacts have been discovered throughout the years. Experience a breathtaking view from Lookout Point located in Van Buren county with a view of Searcy and Stone counties. Listen to the mountain stream inside a rock wall and feel the mystery at Running Rock. Relax to the serene sounds of water running in the clear blue streams at the various scenic rest areas along the trails.

Some of our trails are quite rugged, even for experienced riders, so be prepared to “COWBOY UP!”

Sorry, we do not provide horses, so bring your own, or come enjoy a vigorous hike through nature.
