Best Hiking Trails:
The Beaver River trail, Bruce and Georgian trail are always amazing to take your furry friend on an adventure while you get some scenic exercise. This is a wonderful resource for local trails, trail etiquette, and poisonous plants to keep an eye out for!
Tip: Along the Georgian trail (right by the Thornbury Bridge) the town offers doggy bags to stoop and scoop your pets poo if you have forgotten yours on your walk – so keep an eye out. The Blue Mountains loves Dogs so please be a respectful owner and pick up after your pup.
