The back of the ranch directly accesses the extensive forest trails of the Allegheny National Forest. The trails vary from the well maintained snowmobile trails to the more challenging mountain trails. A moderate two hour ride from the Black Caddis Ranch loops over 8 miles, intersecting the 97 mile long North Country trail and passing by the Flying W ranch.
The Black Caddis Ranch is Horse and Snowmobile Friendly! There is lots of room to park both truck and trailer, an open pasture, a stream on the property with hay and straw available.
The Black Caddis Ranch is located at 161 E. Rt. 666, 2 miles past the Flying W Ranch, 1/4 mile past Cougar Bobs Kelletville Tavern, on the left side of the road. The phone number is 330-283-0952. Ken or Peggy Butler will answer your questions.

The Flying W Ranch is a neighbor. Their property can be accessed back through trails from the Black Caddis Ranch property or just up Rt. 666, in Kelletville, PA. Peggy took her first ride and it was beautiful. The rate was reasonable, $40.00 for a two hour ride through the mountains. She said it was some of the best trail riding she had ever done!
The back of the property goes back some 800 yards,an open pasture, becoming forest about 400 yards back. Here is a view on an early spring day.

Just a couple pictures of my favorite spots, just a short hike away from the house. A couple in a canoe were the only visitors that drifted by my spots on this beautiful spring day.
