McCONNELSVILLE, Ohio — AEP employees and retirees are invited to hit the trail.

The 15th annual AEP Employee and Retiree Trail Ride at AEP’s ReCreation Land Equine Activity Area will take place Oct. 27 and 28 at the site located about seven miles north of McConnelsville, at 3400 E. State Route 78. Participants must bring their own horse.
 
The ride kicks off at 10 a.m. Riders should pack a trail lunch. A potluck dinner is scheduled Saturday night with meat for grilling provided by AEP.
 
Anne Lindimore, administrative associate at Muskingum River Plant, coordinates the outing.
 
“This is our 15th year and it has been a great event,” said Lindimore. “The trails are in great shape and participants will enjoy the friendly people.”
 
Approximately 30 miles of trails are available to riders. Many are well shaded and hilly with shallow creek crossings, said Lindimore. The trails were developed and are maintained in a partnership between AEP and the Ohio Horseman’s Council. Guides are available on Saturday and Sunday.
 
Free camping, firewood and horse water is provided. No electricity is available at the campsite, but there are Port-O-Lets and the area has tie lines and picnic tables. The trailhead staging area can accommodate 100 horse trailers.
 
A permit is required to use the Equine Activity Area, which is open to the public, and is available free online at http://www.aep.com/environmental/recreation/recland/permit.aspx
 

For more information, contact Lindimore at (audinet) 273-3487, (direct dial) 740-984-3487, or aylindimore@aep.com.
