Massachusetts can be a great place to hike with your dog. Within a short drive your canine adventurer can be climbing mountains that leave him panting, trotting through impossibly green ravines, exploring the estates of America's wealthiest families, circling lakes for miles and never lose sight of the water, or running down a sandy ocean beach. Doggin' Massachusetts selects the 100 best places to take your dog for an outing and ranks them according to such criteria as the variety of hikes available, opportunities for canine swimming and pleasure of the walks. The rankings include a mix of parks that feature long walks and parks that contain short walks. Doggin' Massachusetts tells you the parks that don't welcome dogs. Also packed inside these 152 pages are...outifitting your dog for a hike...what to expect on the trail...tips on practicing low impact hiking with your dog...and much more.
