The A.H. Stephens State Park trails consist of mostly dirt/clay/sand equestrian trails that are wide enough for two or three teams to walk side by side.  The trails are shady and well groomed.  There are some portions of the trail that are grassy roadside or lakeshore passages and other portions that may cross paved roads within the park.  There is at least one wooden bridge.  There are several areas marked on the map that are close to pave roads accessible by car.
