Dog on trail
Keep pets on a 6ft leash!

General Guidelines and Tips:

  • Pets are required to be on a 6ft leash at all times.

  • Yield the right of way when hiking with your dogs. Remember, not all hikers are comfortable around dogs. Yield the right of way to horseback riders & horse-drawn carriages.

  • In all seasons, this is a Leave No Trace park. Pet waste must be collected and removed by pet owners. There are no trash cans in the park for disposal. There are trash cans in the parking lot at Billings Farm & Museum.

  • Hiking is hard work for a dog. Watch your dog for signs of stress and fatigue, and give it plenty of water and rest.

  • Never leave pets unattended inside vehicles, especially during summer.

  • In winter dogs, and walkers may use the multi-use trails only. Dogs must be kept on a leash for the safety of wildlife and enjoyment of trails by all. (See: Winter Sports for more information.)

The Green Mountain Club has a four-part video series on Hiking with Dogs.
