Bridle Trails

Killearn Estates’ Master Plan of 1966 included 13 acres for a riding academy and miles of bridle trails meandering throughout the neighborhood. By 1980, however, it was apparent that the riding academy would not survive with the nearby development of Dublin Downs that offered larger acreage lots for horse owners. The riding academy land became, and was appropriately named, Steeplechase in 1987. The bridle trails remain today for the pleasure of walkers and joggers alike and are outlined at the numerous street entrances by rail fencing and copper caps. The bridle trails are represented in the map below by the thin green lines.
