Dog-Friendly Hikes in Vermont

VT state parks camping hunting fishing outdoor sports Vermont Parks Nature preservesHiking with your canine companion can be one of the most rewarding things to do when living in or visiting Vermont. Vermont has so many beautiful mountains and peaks full of trails that it is hard to not want to get out there and explore. Many of Vermont’s state parks do not allow dogs on the trails. The parks that do allow dogs for hiking are ones not to miss. The following are some of Vermont’s state parks that allow canine companions to hike and explore with their owners.

Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park located in Woodstock, Vermont is a wonderful place to visit. There are many things to see and do during your adventure on this historical site. Pets are allowed as long as they are on leash. The park is open for hiking on the trails and carriage roads during three seasons. Once the snowfall hits, the trails are then groomed for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.



Lowell Lake State Park located in Londonderry, Vermont is a great place to start your canine companion off with his/her first hikes. Lowell Lake Loop Trail is about 3.5 miles long and is of mainly flat terrain. This is a great place to bring an older canine that is not as active as he/she used to be.

Your canine companion will be very happy to join you on a hike in the wonderful state of Vermont.
