Horse Mountain is the first trail head you'll find after entering Baxter State Park through its north entrance.
The trail is relatively easy and gradually ascends for 1.2 miles to a junction where you can go straight for another 0.3 miles to the peak of Horse Mountain or take a left and hike 0.3 miles to the East Spur Overlook.
