Fairfield, Alabama, is a suburb of Birmingham, just a few exits west of downtown on I-20. With this convenient location, your fur family will be barking it up all over the city. There is so much to see, sniff, and do in metro Birmingham — from the locally-sourced rawhide treats at the Whole Dog Market in Homewood, to the water features and winding paths at Railroad Park downtown, to the splash pad and agility equipment at Beneful Dream Dog Park in Alabaster. You can even take your pups on a date night at the Coyote Drive-In in Leeds, less than half an hour from Fairfield.

Fairfield pups can unleash their wild side without going far. On the northeastern edge of metro Birmingham, Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve has miles of rugged trails in terrain dotted by historic iron mines. On the southern edge in Hoover, you can hike among striking boulders at the Moss Rock Preserve. Like most of the area's parks, Ruffner and Moss Rock welcome on-leash dogs and ask owners to clean up after their pets.

For less adventurous days, you'll find all you need close to Fairfield. Fairfield City Park has a walking path around the athletic facilities, and the good sidewalks in this friendly, affordable part of town will please your pups. The animal clinic just over the eastern city limit is your nearest vet. You'll find a major pet-supply chain and dog-friendly restaurants with outdoor seating a few miles east in Homewood.

The High Ore Line Trail runs through southern Fairfield, but the easiest parking is on Etheridge Drive in Midfield. This converted railway is now a paved and elevated 2.1-mile walking trail, smooth enough for wheelchairs, strollers, and pups with short legs or limited mobility. The High Ore Line offers some lovely views down at the creek and community below. If your long-legged pups need more of a challenge, you can add to your hike by veering off to enjoy the walking path around the pond at Midfield Park, where you'll also find restrooms and water fountains. The well-kept mid-century homes between the park and Midfield Elementary School make a pleasant setting for a walk, too.

Fairfield is less than 7 miles from perhaps the most delightful doggy destination in all of Alabama. Red Mountain Park has everything a pup could dream of: miles of hiking trails, an epic off-leash dog park, and lots of other dogs. The 15 miles of hiking trails have three "treehouse" hangouts in the canopy that you reach via trailside boardwalks. Two city overlooks give you Birmingham's best skyline vistas. Whether or not they care about the view, the chance to throw down off-leash at Red Mountain's Remy's Dog Park will really get your pups excited. Remy's has three separate fenced areas that are lovingly maintained, making it one of the area's most popular dog parks. That's fangtastic news if your buddies love to make new friends!

Just a few miles north of Fairfield, the Ensley neighborhood of Birmingham is a great place to walk away your worries. Once an industrial center in its own right, Ensley was annexed into Birmingham in 1910 and now serves as a comfortable residential community. Ensley Park has a path that circles the athletic fields and connects the park to the public library. The paved path then veers off through fields and trees, leading to Avenue Q and a pocket park with lawns and benches on the corner of 20th Street. The surrounding neighborhood is easy to navigate with its logical grid-pattern streets (pretty rare in the South). Though not affluent, the century-old homes and storefronts are attractive scenery for your fur-baby's exercise.

The Glen Iris neighborhood of Birmingham is about 10 miles from Fairfield and home to another excellent off-leash play place. The Green Springs Dog Park at George Ward Park has three fenced areas for dogs of different sizes and temperament. There is plenty of shade, but BYO H2O: a watering station is not available. George Ward Park is also home to the western terminus of the newly-expanded Vulcan Trail, a 2.2-mile trek below the ridge of Red Mountain. Follow the Vulcan Trail all the way to Vulcan Park, home to the world's largest cast-iron statue. The 56-foot representation of the Roman god Vulcan might seem surprisingly pagan for Alabama, but it was created by an Italian sculptor as a tribute to Birmingham's iron-producing roots.

Oak Mountain State Park, Alabama's largest at nearly 10,000 acres, is only 23 miles from Fairfield. The trip is well worth it to enjoy the park's 25 miles of hiking trails and a stunning 65-foot waterfall. Peavine Falls is reached on the steep 2-mile Green Trail, the park's most pawpular hike, while longer trails explore the ridgeline and forest. Dogs aren't allowed on the park beach, but nobody minds if they want to do a little splashing in the many streams and fishing lakes throughout the park. Like all Alabama State Parks, Oak Mountain offers dog-friendly camping if you want to try ruff-ing it for the whole weekend.
