We took Andy on a hike at Jacobsburg State Park, a small state park about half an hour from where we live, earlier this month. It was the first time Andy got to try his hand, or paws rather, at trail hiking. He passed with flying colors! He had no problem navigating the sometimes narrow and precarious trail and he loved dipping his toes in the water. We made sure we had plenty of drinking water for everyone and lots of dog poop bags to pack out Andy's little piles.
Jacobsburg State Park is a great park to visit for light hiking. It's even better with a four-legged friend! There are a number of trails with varying degrees of length and difficulty - though as far as I can tell there's nothing too strenuous. There are picnic areas and lots of nice spots near the creek (Bushkill Creek) to while away an afternoon, with or without kiddos. There's also an environmental educational center at the park that might be worth visiting.
I have the rest of the week off from work, and if the weather stays as nice as it's been the last couple of days, we'll try to hit up the park again. Andy can't get enough of the great outdoors!
