Silver Bluff Trail Ride

The 3rd annual Silver Bluff Audubon Center and Sanctuary Trail Ride, held March 10, was enjoyed by 65 horseback riders and volunteers from around the state, with ages ranging from children to grandparents. The weather cooperated perfectly, and a bit of spring greening was evident as the riders explored nearly 14 miles of trails winding through the varied habitats at Silver Bluff. A mile of trail near the Savannah River was a new addition to the route this year and was a highlight for many. One participant rode that loop twice—though not meaning to!

Another highlight, as usual, was the chuck wagon run by members of the Midland Valley High School FFA Club. Their contribution to this event and others at Silver Bluff is appreciated by one and all.

If you missed the fun this year, put this date on your calendar for the 4th annual ride—March 8, 2008.
