Dog Walking in Bloomington

Bloomington, Indiana is the “Gateway to Scenic Southern Indiana”, and the town was named by settlers because of all the blooming flowers. It is the sixth biggest city in Indiana going by its population numbers. There are also more than 15,000 dogs living in Bloomington, so there are plenty of dog-friendly things to do.

Bloomington is a gold mine of trails for the hiking enthusiast, and the Hoosier State Forest has 28 trails totaling 260 miles ranging from easy to difficult. Hemlock Cliffs is a moderately easy trail that has some difficult spots along the cliff area, but, for the most part, it is a beautiful walk along the canyon with amazing waterfalls. There are hundreds of species of wildlife and plants along Hemlock, including the rare Wintergreen plant. You will also find some rock shelters, ravines, and caves along the way made from honeycombed sandstone. Be sure to bring a camera.

To let your pooch run and play while you relax take him to the Ferguson Dog Park on North Stone Mill Road. This is a huge park with a separate water fountain for pets and their owners, benches, seating blocks, poop bag container, and dog wash stations for the muddy mutts.
