WOOD TRAILS AND/ OR LAKE TRAILS.
SECTION 1  
This area on the east side of Calhoun Falls takes you to TRI S RANCH off hwy. 72 east.
SECTION 2
ABOUT 1 OR 2 HOURS
Trail is on the west side of Hwy. 81 and can start in the middle of town beside feed store. Hwy. 81 splits n/s Calhoun Falls in half with the town in front and 26000 acres and the lake behind me. Trails start at my back door in town.
SECTION 3
RIDE TIME 3 HOURS
Leaves from town and heads west on a wooded trail marked on map, orange on the trees. Trail is a nice easy trail with a few climbing hills, open and cool in the summer.
SECTION 4
RIDE TIME 4 OR 6 HOURS TO ALL DAY or MORE.
Use sec. 3 to go down to lake.  Sec. 4 takes you on one of our main rides of TRI S RANCH. This ride has two landings. Millwood and Beer Garden , with bathrooms right on the lake edge. Parking and pick up or drop off. This is where we stop for dinner. Use the lake's edge or off the lake to ride in the shade of the thick forest. Orange Marked line is Sec. 4's back line trail. If you come off the lake heading east you will run into this wood trail. Helps to know your north and south on the Orange Trail from lake.
SECTION 5
RIDE TIME 3 TO 5 HOURS
This wood trail can be accessed by sec. 3 or sec. 4 in their corners. This wood trail offers a little more challenge to the horse and rider. The end of trail number 5 (a closed off paved road) or trail beside road either one leads back to Hwy. 81. Cross over to old abandoned Rail Road trail. On this RR trail make a left when getting on the trail and will bring you north back by trail 3 and trail 2 or into town marked by red line breaks. If going back to the ranch make the right at center of trail. * There is one house near town that is very close to trail and can be a little unsettling for some horses, including chickens, in general just stuff close to trail, and some times a car .
The family who lives there is very nice and we try to avoid any problem that would change that.
note: How do I say this,? TUFF TRAILS AHEAH.
SECTION 6.    
SECTION 7.
SECTION 8.
Be forewarned.These sections are for experienced Horses and Riders only when riding on the lake and some of the woods.
The wood trail is for the experienced rider, also meaning, it's no cake walk if you ride this trail. We suggest a guide to any of section 6,7,8.
These sections are training areas and you are in a very thick area with not much room for error and no help around for miles. This area is at the very back of the trails. A real good area to test your horse and  your training out. You will find just about anything you want to look for and some you don't.
 Safe riding and always remenber to tell somebody when you head out into any remote area riding.
Enjoy the trails, and be safe,
TRI S RANCH
