Pay homage to the men and women who served our country in the United States Armed Forces on Veterans Day, November 11th.

Mercer County Stables
Mercer County Stables will offer trail rides to the public each week through spring of 2022, weather permitting. The trail rides will take you through Mercer Meadows and require no lessons or previous riding experience. Trail riding at Mercer County Stables started in 2019 as an avenue to allow more people to experience horseback riding. The number of visitors to the Stables has steadily increased over the past few years with the support of the Park Commission’s pricing and access initiative. “Hundreds of people have taken advantage of these low-cost outings,” said Christine Cardinal, Director of the Stables. Rides are $35 for 30 minutes and $45 for 45 minutes. Reservations are required. Call (609) 730-9059, ext. 401. For more information, click here
