Mooresville is only 12 miles from the Indianapolis International Airport and less than 20 from Downtown Indy. With over 160 dog-friendly restaurants and 8 off-leash dog parks in the Indy metro area, Mooresville's suburban location gives your pup lots of amenities to bark about. Still, Mooresville’s slow pace and sense of community keep the small-town spirit alive.

The 150-acre Pioneer Park is Mooresville’s premier dog walking destination. Located a little north of downtown, this park combines leafy greenspace with family-fun facilities ranging from baseball diamonds to a zip line. Three miles of paved walking paths circle the park, giving your fur-baby a view of the action while he works off some energy. Be sure to clean up any messes: the Parks & Rec headquarters is in Pioneer Park and upkeep is a priority.

The Vandalia Trail stretches for 16 miles, running within a few miles of Mooresville. It is the longest completed segment of the planned 150-mile National Road Heritage Trail that will cross the state end-to-end. The two segments of the Vandalia — one wild, one surburban — are reached by trailheads in the nearby towns of Amo and Plainfield. The Amo trailhead is in the middle of the small downtown, but that segment of the trail is peaceful and rarely used, passing through forest and onto a boardwalk that crosses Crittenden Creek on a 30-foot trestle and continues on to Coatesville. The Plainfield section is paved, wheelchair-accessible, and far more heavily used — which means new friends for your sociable pups.

Downtown Mooresville is pedestrian-friendly and best explored by paw. The Mooresville Commercial Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and Main Street’s brick-front storefronts recall the city’s 19th century roots; download a self-guided historical walking tour from the Mooresville Public Library website. While you study the architecture, your fur-baby will appreciate the interesting smells and friendly neighbors. You can take a break on a bench in the small Hadley Memorial Park at the corner of Main and Indiana, but a real walk through Mooresville’s past should include Old Town Park, a few blocks southeast just below High Street — the seven-acre green space has been a Mooresville gathering place since 1877.

In Morgan County, you don't have to go far to sniff out true wilderness. Rooker Park on the southern edge of Mooresville is still largely undeveloped, and this 18-acre city park along the banks on East Fork White Lick Creek is rich in wildlife (and a great place for summertime splashing). Farther south along Highway 67, the nonprofit Fred and Dorothy Meyer Nature Preserve is ideal for peace and quiet; with no facilities, the preserve is just a few parking spaces and a long loop trail through 68 acres of protected forest, with spur trails available to add length. For both locations, be sure to bring waste bags, water, and a good leash.

Two furrific parks are located within a one-mile stretch of South Center Street in Plainfield, and you can be there in less than 10 minutes from Mooresville. The Bark Park at Swinford Park is a doggy daydream, so the small annual membership fee is a great investment. (Proof of vaccination is also required.) The two off-leash play areas are accessed by key card. The on-leash trails around Swinford also enhance your workout. To really work up a sweat, head south to Hummel Park, where a paved jogging trail circles the entire facility and parallels White Lick Creek. Additional paths wind among the athletic facilities. This dog-friendly park asks that your buddy stays on-leash and that you clean up after your pet.

The Soldalis Nature Park is less than 4 miles from Mooresville. In southern Plainfield next to Friendswood, this 210-acre park with a 5-acre pond gives your fur-family room to roam. You'll find 5 miles of hiking trails and a wildlife viewing platform where you might spot deer, rabbits, or wild turkeys (depending on how good your buddy is at quiet waiting). If you see a bat, even better: Sodalis Nature Park was created to protect the endangered Myotis sodalis Indiana bat species. If you need more trail, Southwestway Park is just a few miles east, providing another 210 acres of woods and meadow along the White River. The park's main attraction is its extensive trail network pawpular with hikers, bikers, equestrians, and of course, dogs. Since mountain bikes might catch your pup off guard, the park's regulars suggest skipping headphones during your walk.

At a whopping 16,000 acres, Brown County State Park is Indiana's largest and sometimes called the "Little Smokies" for its stunning mountain scenery. Park trails come in varied lengths and difficulties. The 0.5-mile interpretive Discovery Nature Trail works for any pup's stamina, even the little guys. For mountaintop views with athletic dogs, take on the rugged 2-mile Fire Tower Trail or 3-mile Taylor Ridge Trail. You can also download an audio tour of the Abe Mountain Lodge Hike and listen to local lore during your workout. If your buddy would rather ride than hike, the park features many scenic drives and picnic spots. Stop in the town of Nashville as you leave if Fido's been a very good boy. Bone Appetite Bakery on Van Buren Street sells handcrafted doggy delights; your pup will beg for more!
