Catlin's 333 acres host 14 distinct trails plus numerous connector trails which course through the park's habitat, past various streams and ponds. The well-groomed trails are perfect for novice horses or riders, but challenging enough for more seasoned riders. Adjacent to a 120x160-foot horse arena is an obstacle course used by the LaSalle County Sheriff's Mounted Search and Rescue Posse. The horse trails are recognized as some of the best in the central area. The trails are used by horseback riders, hikers, joggers, birdwatchers, bike riders, and photographers.
