Hiking with Your Dog: State by State Guides
Posted by Brooke Spater on 8th April 2019
Did you know that by 2060, day hiking is
projected to see the greatest rate of growth in adults out of any outdoor recreational activity
according to the American Hiking Society?
As the dog adventure experts, we know that many people want to include their pups in these hikes too. After all, what makes a dog happier than endless
sniffing opportunities and varied terrain over which to roam? Enjoying the
great outdoors with your dog is one of the best ways you can bond. Hiking
through the wilderness together improves your health, brightens your mood, and
brings you closer together.
Here at Kurgo, we’ve created hiking guides by state and region. We are constantly adding to

we’ll try to add it.
