It really doesn’t matter what time of day you come to visit, because Sweetie Pie's is going to have something delicious waiting for you. You and your pup can enjoy a large selection of breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They also have two areas that you can enjoy with your fur baby. If the weather is nice, you can sit out on the patio. If you aren’t enjoying the weather so much, they have an enclosed patio that is safe from the wind and the rain for you to enjoy. The best part is that it is only four miles from Smithflat.
Old Town is full of trails for you to walk with your pup. Along these trails, you will find historic shops and business that are fur-friendly and welcoming. There are even several places that have watering bowls out front. The neat part is that a lot of the stores prominently display paw prints, showing that they welcome your pet to come and in the shop with you. This is a fun way to learn the history of the area without having to spend the day in the car, and it’s only four miles from Smithflat! Just remember to bring your leash along for the adventure.
The Rails-to-Trails system has turned its attention to Placerville. The El Dorado Trail is a great place to see history and get your exercise. You will learn the history of the Gold Rush by walking through these former boom towns. Stop in Old Town at the end of the trail to catch the history of specific to each building. The best part is that Rails-to-Trails have paved these trails so that they are fun and easy to walk with your pet. As you are walking, you can take in the same scenery that the original rail riders saw when they were planning their adventure.
