Bellwood is a village located north of the Eisenhower Expressway and 13 miles from the Chicago Loop. This area includes a furriffic trail, and it is near several off-leash exercise facilities. When you're seeking professional care for your pooch, you can find veterinary clinics in Stone Park and Westchester, just a few miles away.

You can get out and explore nature with your pup at Fullersburg Woods, about eight miles southwest of Bellwood. This 226-acre forest preserve includes miles of multi-purpose trails for you and your special pal to enjoy. Dogs are permitted in most areas of the facility, provided you keep them on a leash and pick up their waste.

Just beyond Fullersburg Woods, you can give your furry friend a chance to romp and play off-leash at Mayslake Forest Preserve Dog Park. This fenced facility has over four acres of land where dogs have a chance to socialize. After your pup spends some time with other canines,  leash up and walk on the trails in the rest of the preserve. 

Another pawtacular trail in the area is the Great Western Trail. You can get on up this Rails-to-Trails pathway in Villa Park on S Villa Avenue across from Ovaltine Court. The trailhead is about five miles west of Bellwood.

With several pet-friendly trails and forest preserves in the vicinity, Bellwood is a pawtastic place for dogs and their owners!
