A list of our favorite pet friendly Northeast hikes & weekend getaways
When hiking with your furry friends always be sure to bring water, even in the coolest temps dogs need to stay hydrated. We suggest this water bottle which holds enough water and eliminates carrying a bowl. And has a great carabiner to clip onto backpacks or fits into any standard cup holder.
Hartshorne Woods - Atlantic Highlands, NJ
We're spoiled to have this in our backyard. There are so many trails to choose from, all different difficulties and lengths. Our favorite is Rocky Point or Claypit Creek to Laurel Ridge, both are a great workout with great views.
Mount Tammany - Delaware Water Gap, NJ
This one is a bit challenging but the view is worth it! We suggest hiking in the fall, it's close enough to do day trips to and there are so many great shops in the surrounding towns.
Cedar Point Park - East Hampton, NY
Not only does this park have numerous trails to hike but there is also camping. This is a great spot to hike the trails to the bay beach and then back. Watch out for ticks in the warmer weather.
Shadmoor State Park - Montauk, NY
At the end of the trail, before heading back, let the dogs run on the beach. Recommend going in the off season to avoid the crowds. Bring a picnic to enjoy by the ocean or stop at John's Drive In on the way back out for a tasty burger.
Robert H Treman Park - Ithaca, NY
A challenging hike to say the least but so rewarding. The dogs can stop and swim in the waterfall and it's a nice opportunity for you to cool off too! On the way back stop at the Six Mile Creek Vineyard for some wine tasting and dog friendly environment. Highly suggest Yancey's Fancy Champagne Cheddar Cheese to pair with your tasting.
Jamaica State Park - Jamaica, VT
We love Vermont and so do our dogs. Jamaica is a quaint town with a great country store and hiking trail. You can snowshoe in the winter and hike in the Fall/Summer. There are plenty of AirBnBs around to choose from. This Tiny House was perfect for our weekend getaway.
