Kick off your Emmaus adventure with a treat from Louie's Bakery! They have dog friendly tables outside if you want to order off their menu, or select some tasty cakes or a loaf of bread to go!
Rodale Track is a quick and easy one mile loop path in Emmaus. Leashed dogs are welcome to accompany you, but be aware that you may have to share the road with cyclists, joggers, and other dog walkers!
If you're looking for a bit more of a challenge, South Mountain Park is right for you. The Orange Trail in this park is a 3.6 mile loop that's fantastic for dog walking! The rest of South Mountain Park is also a treat. Take in Emmaus's wildflowers (in season) and explore some of the area's natural beauty.
Emmaus is a dog-friendly city that makes tails wag!
Alton Park is a great neighborhood to start your exploration of Emmaus. Boroline Park is a great community park that offers something for everyone. Your dog probably won't be impressed with the playground or sports fields, but their ears will perk up when you mention the mile long walking trail! This simple out and back trail starts from the parking lot, so bring plenty of water and a doggie bowl to share it with you. Work up an appetite? Don't fear, OUTLAW Cafe & BBQ Pit is here! Dig in to mouthwatering pit-smoked BBQ dishes. Sit outside with your dog, and be sure to "accidentally" drop a bite or two!
The Emmaus Community Park is a huge park inside the heart of the city. This heavily populated park has a few features that draw the crowds. The first is an outdoor swimming pool! Sadly, dogs are not allowed. The sports fields and courts draw a lot of attention, and the picnic pavillions are pupular with local dogs! Set up for a great picnic lunch or take the walking path to stretch your pup's legs. Furnace Dam is another option in the neighborhood if you're looking for something more natural. This small park lacks a playground or sports fields, but fishing is allowed!
Jasper Park is a fitness oriented park. In addition to the sports fields and playground, there's a large walking trail. This path runs a good distance, and has exercise stops along the way! Pause your walk to get in some pullups or use the step pyramid to gain some elevation on an otherwise flat track. These little touches add interest for humans, but your pup will probably be happy just following this path! Once you've worked up an appetite, The Trapp Door Gastropub is a dog-friendly neighborhood favorite. Sit outside and enjoy brews and innovative, upscale pub favorites include spare ribs and rosotto!
Camp Olympic Park is a busy park in the Milbrook Farms neighborhood of Emmaus! This large park is set far back from the hustle and bustle of the city, and really makes you feel like you're out in nature! The top dog-friendly features are the extensive walking paths and bike trail. Keep your dog on leash in the park so you can effectively share the road! If you're tuckered out, there are covered picnic tables. Cool down there, or watch the bike tricks happening on the bike obstacle course. Camp Olympic Park is large enough that it's best to bring your own supplies in with you; there's a lot of distance between drinking fountains!
