Trail Information Guide


Access - The Bridle Trail begins at the trailhead along Double Run Road. From Eagles Mere in Sullivan County, follow Rt. 42 West for 1.5 miles, then turn right onto SR 3009 (Double Run Road). The parking area will be a little over two miles on the right. The trail head is located at the center of two 25-mile loops, the East Loop and the West Loop. During the winter months, the trailhead is utilized by both snow-mobilers and cross-country skiers. The year-round use of this area means everyone must exercise good judgement, common courtesy and concern for the trail's environment.
