Maybe as many child abducters hang out at parks and malls, maybe less.
As ambush predators, they tend to get to know their hunting grounds, and how to exploit the lay of the land to take their prey without getting caught. Naturally, there are many levels of skill and experience, from dumb-shit newb to ninja-master pro rapist. Horse trails tend to be rural, with lots of places to disappear someone, yet has enough traffic to be of interest. In my AO we have a trail along the river, very popular for running, skating and biking. Plenty of young, fit females to stalk. Second year it was open, we had several rapes on the trail, ambush-predator style: dawn and dusk, in the long grass, very pro. Never caught the guy, as far as I know, he just moved on once the heat got turned up, found another hunting ground.
It might be fine, or it may be a really shitty way to die. Overall, the same reasons I carry every day.
I don't want to indict any groups or paint with too broad a brush, but there are plenty of "undesirables" that hangout on the horse/ATV/4x4 trails. Which is why I kept a handgun in a special "easy to get to, yet very secure" holster I had attached inside a small fender bag, when me and my buddies used to race ATVs cross country.
