From the popular Mountaineers Books series, Best Hikes With Dogs – this is the book that covers the City of Boston and the surrounding area. Where to hike with Rover in Boston and the surrounding Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island area: all trails recommended as dog-friendly and dog-fun!
*Terrain that’s canine hazard-free and easy on the paws
*No leashes required on some trails and rarely a crowd to dodge
These trails do not require leashes (except in parks as noted). More than two-thirds of the hikes in Best Hikes With Dogs – Connecticut are on lesser known trails where travel is light and where you’re unlikely to meet horses, bicycles, or motorized vehicles. They avoid steep, rocky terrain and offer lakes or streams as a reward. Additional features include what to pack for your pooch (The Ten Canine Essentials), and a Trail Finder chart that lists hikes by terrain, difficulty for dogs, leash regulations, and more.
