Helpful Information about Dog Walking Trails

Charlie Brown noted that happiness is a warm puppy. We believe for a dog happiness is a long walk. And what better way to return the affection your canine companion gives you than to take her for a sniff along a trail? Use TrailLink.com to find dog-walking trails across the country.

On most trails, dogs will be required to be leashed, so please be sure to Share the Trail appropriately. As dogs may not be permitted on all trails, such as some that traverse wildlife-sensitive areas, it's a good idea to check with the local trail managers regarding their pet policies. Their website links can be found under "Related Content" on TrailLink trail pages.

Check out this blog post for other dog-walking tips, such as carrying water for your pet and plastic bags to clean up after them.

You can help your fellow dog walkers by posting a review of a trail on TrailLink, noting any restrictions for dogs or special amenities like dog parks. We invite you to upload a picture of your pooch as well. After all, nothing says, "this trail rocks!" like an image of Rover with his tongue hanging out and his tail wagging!
