Shelby Trails Park

Shelby Trails Park is a public park open to equestrians and hikers alike


As a trail rider or hiker, the park welcomes you to enjoy over 400 acres and 21 miles of beautiful trails! Our trail system has a bit of everything: flat easy areas, creek crossings, step over logs, good hills and more technical trails on the back side.


Bring your horses or your hiking boots and take advantage of this beautiful park! If you own your own horse,

all you need to do is buy a day pass located at the kiosk ($10) or year pass online.


Shelby Trails Park was made possible through a generous donation from Dr. Roger & Diane Shott of Anchorage,

The Park was officially deeded to Shelbyville/Shelby County Parks & Recreation in 2010. 


Shelby Trails Park is a part of The Shelby County Parks Foundation, a 501C3. The County Parks and Foundation ensures the maintenance of the property and trails, as well as provide donation and fundraising opportunities for the Park.

Red Fern Riding Center

Red Fern Riding Center is an independently owned and operated horseback riding center. As stewards of the land, Red Fern Riding Center acts as a concierge to Park in promoting the park and it's public and private services. 


Red Fern Riding Center offers an array of services from guided horseback rides to the general public to riding lessons, horse training and full-care boarding. In addition, we host community-related events, provide volunteer opportunities for trail expansion, trail and farm maintenance - and much more!

Shelby Trails Park and Red Fern Riding Center are located in Simpsonville, in the heart of Kentucky horse country, with easy access from Lexington, Cincinnati - and just 35 minutes from downtown Louisville!
