Dog Walking in Zion

The city if Zion, Illinois was founded in 1901 by an evangelist who named the city after Mount Zion in Israel. It now has a population of over 24,000 people, and it is steadily growing. If you live in Zion, you’ll experience all four seasons, from warm summers to cold winters and everything in between. Of course, this means adventuring outdoors with your pup is fun no matter the time of year in Zion! There is plenty to do outside to keep your dog in shape and well-socialized, but when it comes time to their other health needs, there are many veterinarians in the Zion area that will take great care of your beloved companion.

Downtown Zion is a historic area you won’t want to miss, and within this area is It’s All Good Coffee and Espresso. If you’ve been strolling through downtown with your dog and you’re looking for the perfect cup of coffee and a fresh pastry, this is the place to go! Their outdoor dog-friendly tables make for pawsome people-watching spots, and you can also dig into It’s All Good’s sandwiches, paninis, soup, and more while you kick back. When it’s time to get back up, you’ll be greeted with so many exciting options for exploring Zion with your dog that you’re both sure to enjoy.

Winthrop Harbor lies just south of the Wisconsin/Illinois border and overlooks Lake Michigan to the east. Illinois Beach State Park allows Zion residents to take advantage of the biking, camping, fishing, swimming, and hiking opportunities they provide; leashed dogs are welcome in the picnic areas, the campgrounds, and the hiking trails but are prohibited from the rest of the park. The Robert McClorey Bike Path is part of the nationwide conservancy Rails-to-Trails project that creates multi-use trails from old, out-of-service railroads that you and your pooch can now explore together!

Van Patten Woods Forest Preserve and Sterling Lake Forest Preserve both allow dogs that are on leash to enjoy the hiking trails with their human where they can observe wildlife and the scenery together. Des Plaines River Trail used to be a railroad passage that has been turned into an awesome walking trail that is ideal for residents with doggies!

Much like Rosecrans, Wadsworth is also easily accessible from Interstate 94, about 5.5 miles west of Zion with nature preserves all around! County Forest Preserve allows leashed dogs to enjoy the trails with their owners; however, there is a designated, fun, off-leash dog area in the preserve where pooches can freely explore the territory. Just be aware that off-leash dogs are strictly prohibited anywhere else in the preserve. If you need to refuel after all that hiking and sun, Savanna House Restaurant & Bar will let your dog tag along and chill out on the patio!

The Kenosha County Bike Trail is a great place to walk your dog in Pleasant Prairie; it used to be a railroad, but thanks to the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy efforts, it is now a place that promotes physical activity for the residents. Anderson Park is another place you can take your pooch for any on-leash exercise they like doing! If you decide you want to overnight, there is a privately-owned country studio that is housed in a renovated horse barn that accommodates pups.
