Hiking With Dogs in the Adirondacks
The Adirondack Mountains are a lovely place to explore with any companion, especially the furry ones. Find guides to doggy hiking and adventures with tips and tricks below.
A dog's size is definitely a factor in deciding what trail to hike. These hikes
are good for larger, more energetic dogs.
Small dogs, puppies, and older dogs are better with lower elevation hikes
that don't have large waterways or overly steep sections.
The Adirondacks can be difficult even for humans, and some trails are off-limits for dogs. Here are some of the trails to avoid
to keep your canine safe and happy.
