Dog Areas in Hood

California is anything but ordinary -- its warm weather and unique outdoor opportunities make it a furrific place to be a dog owner. Although the state's oceanside muttropolises are the most popular tourist destinations, even California's smallest towns are alive with culture, soul, and scenic beauty. Hood, California is a tiny town with less than 300 residents, but plenty of natural beauty to make up for it.

Because Hood is a sparsely populated, census-designated place, there's not much in the way of traditional amenities for dog owners. In other words, you won't find any dog parks or dog-friendly eateries here. Luckily, Hood is located just a short drive from some of California's biggest cities, where dog-friendly fun abounds!

If you get tired of the peace and quiet of Hood, you can always drive fifteen miles to the state capital. Sacramento is a hub of culture, food, events, art and shopping. No matter what you and Spot like to do, Sacramento will not disappoint! Just make sure to bring water and waste baggies for your adventures outside of town.

    Hood might be small, but it does have its own green space: Hood Community Park. This park is just as small as the town it's located in, but it's still a nice place for you and your pooch to have some fun. You'll often see locals walking their dogs, so you and Fido are sure to sniff out some new friends while you're here! Just be careful, because the park is next to a road and is not fenced in. Your pooch should stay leashed at all times. Don't forget to bring some water and waste bags so you can do your part to keep the park clean.

    Although the drive to Suisun City Center will take you approximately an hour, the trip is definitely worth it. This part of the city has not one, but two large parks. First, check out Grizzly Island Wildlife Area, a giant forest preserve with an abundance of wildlife, nature, and beauty. When you are done there, head to San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. Unlike Grizzly Island Wildlife Area ,this reserve is a large stretch of flat land with tall, lush, green grass. You'll need to keep Spot on a leash at all times in both parks.

    Who doesn't love a good hike up a mountain? Even the most dedicated couch pup-tatoes love spending time in nature. If you think you and Lassie are up for the challenge, consider spending a day or weekend outdoors at Mt. Diablo State Park, a large nature preserve surrounding the stunning Mt. Diablo. This mountain is nearly 4,000 ft high, so it could take you a while to reach the top! You can also check out the easier trails in the park, as they have beautiful views too. Trust us, the two-hour drive is well worth it!
