    #2 Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge Dog Park

    The Katherine Legge Memorial Dog Park in Hinsdale is a real mutts-visit. One of the few dog parks in Cook County that isn’t members-only, the park is huge and even features a small creek! There’s no separate areas for large and small dogs, though, so be mindful of your pup’s temperament. Water and bags are provided, but be warned -- you can only let your pup off leash during certain hours. The off-leash area is in operation from 5 AM to 9 AM and 7 PM to 10 PM in the summer, and 5 AM to 10am and 5 PM to 10 PM during the winter. If you let your pooch run free outside of these times, you risk a $50 fine.

    #3 Fullersburg

    For fur-friendly hiking, look no further than Fullersburg Woods in nearby Oakbrook. This stately natural oak woodland showcases some of the most splendid scenery Cook County has to offer, and there’s a trail here for every fitness level. Be careful, though; no matter how much your buddy loves swimming, letting them loose in Saltwater Creek is a bad idea -- those currents can be dangerous! Be sure to bring your own water and bags, and look up a trail map before you go. Some trails aren’t suitable for your pooch due to the wildlife in the area.
