The Village of Niles, just north of Chicago, is a beautiful spot to visit with your dog in Cook County. There are many walking trails and woodland areas to explore, as well as a great choice of places to eat. And with two animal hospitals in town, should Fido run into any trouble, you will be covered!

For a lovely hike through nature with your pup, check out the Miami Woods. This forest preserve covers 113 acres and has a 1.5-mile paved section of the North Branch Trail running through it. This trail extends a total of 19.7 miles along the North Branch of the Chicago River, and is a popular place for walking and biking. There are many picnic groves throughout Miami Woods to stop for a bite to eat or a little rest, or you can continue south along the trail through the Niles Park District for more places to see. You will need to keep your dog leashed in the woods.

If you are hungry after your big walk, head to one of Niles’s many pup-friendly eateries where you can sit with your dog at an outside table. Play Book is a sports bar with all the classics – wings, burgers, pasta, sandwiches or salads. Goodi’s has a Greek-style menu, and Bobby’s Charcoal Ribs is a popular place for a delicious burger or plate of ribs.

Niles has a lot to offer visitors with dogs, so stop by and check it out!
