“It’s not where you walk, it’s who you walk with!”

I’m a proud mom of 3 teenagers, and 3 dogs. My family and I recently moved to Cincinnati from Indianapolis, where I began working for Wag. Wag has been such a fun experience for me. I have loved and bonded with every dog that I have walked. Before working for Wag, I worked as a kennel attendant and front desk receptionist at an animal hospital, where I walked, fed and distributed medications to all the boarding animals. My heart is with all dogs.

Dog Walking in Burlington

Burlington is a special place for dog-lovers and their canine companions, offering many options for activities that doggos love. It is located only 16 miles from Cincinnati and its dog-friendly resources, but it is locally that Fido-focused humans will find pristine parks and walking trails. This is a suburban-to-rural city, and the open spaces have been dotted with opportunities for fresh air and exercise. And with one animal hospital and several more within a 10-mile drive from downtown Burlington, you can be sure Fido will stay healthy, happy and ready to go.

Take your pup to the Gunpowder Creek Nature Park, which features 223 wooded acres full of wildlife and  forest. An unpaved 1.25 miles of hiking trails have been reclaimed out of an 1800s logging road, which end near Gunpowder Creek at a stone seating area. The trails have been described as difficult, so be sure to take water and other wilderness hiking gear along. With your canine companion on leash, exploring this park will be a real adventure! When you’re ready to rest, check out the shelter, complete with electricity and water.

Another popular walking park is the England/Idlewild Park that features 2 paved trails measuring a total of almost 2 miles of easy to moderate hiking. Fishing enthusiasts flock to Idlewild because of the park’s large lake and 2 small ponds that are stocked annually with fish. This 190-acre park offers wooded and open areas, along with wetlands. The icing on the cake for dog lovers and their canine pals is the adjacent Boone County Dog Park, where a pent-up, bored dog can become a tired, happy dog. The park has 2 separate fenced areas for large and small dogs, each featuring a double-gated system, benches and a shelter for the humans. People and doggos have their own dedicated water fountains, and shade trees are in abundance. Woof-derful!

This neighborhood is home to the Boone Woods Park, a lovely 50-acre expanse that features large swaths of green among its playgrounds, sports fields, basketball and tennis courts. With all the active recreation going on, there is still plenty of room in this dog-friendly park for you and your leash-controlled companion to have some fun, exercise or simply relax on the grass or on one of the many benches. There are lots of mature shade trees to keep you comfortable, plus 3 shelters with running water, electricity, a grill and picnic tables. Instead of walking paths, there are rolling green hills and pastures where the 2 of you can wander.

The Belleview/ Petersburg neighborhood of Burlington is home to a duo of dog-friendly parks and a lake. Camp Ernst Lake is one of the popular fishing areas in Burlington. The lake features a fishing pier, as well as a boat ramp for those who prefer to fish while rocking on the water. With your furry Bestie by your side, cast your line or dangle your hook in hopes of fish for dinner! Also in this neighborhood is the Middle Creek Park, a walking venue with 9 trails totaling 8.5 miles. Be aware that these trails are unpaved and difficult, and there is no cell phone coverage in this area, so be sure to take all reasonable precautions associated with wilderness trekking. A second walking venue is Dinsmore Woods, another semi-wilderness hike of 1.7 miles. Be sure you take warm clothing, an energy source like nuts or a protein bar, and plenty of water for both you and Fido. Pawsome!

When you and Fido have been totally spent in Burlington’s Parks and walking venues, it’s time to search out someplace to take your dog-faced date to eat and get a good night’s sleep. Head down to Florence, a mere 6 miles southeast of Burlington, where there are several dog-friendly restaurants featuring great food and outdoor seating for your leashed pup. Don’t miss Currito, a casual Southwestern restaurant specializing in freshly made burritos. For pub food like fish and chips, wings and pub pretzels, take your pupto the Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery. They feature a full bar, too. When you’re ready to crawl into bed, Extended Stay America, the Ashley Quarters Hotel and Red Roof Inn are waiting for you and your furry Bestie. Fido stays for a small additional fee. Night-night.

In this neighborhood, you’ll find the Stringtown Park, an 8-acre space with play and sports facilities, and open green space with an asphalt paved trail. This is a great spot to take your fur-baby for a walk on-leash. Afterwards, take him over to the pup-friendly Brickhouse Pub and Grub, whose menu features typical pub grub like wings and burgers, but stretches the envelope a bit with items like shrimp and grits, and chicken mac and cheese. Your favorite fellow pub-crawler, Fido, will be happy to help you finish your meal. Get an excellent and reasonably priced night’s sleep at Best Western, Super 8 Florence or Budget Inn. Woofers are welcome, for a small additional fee.

In the Hebron neighborhood of Francisville, about 4 miles from Burlington, sits the dog-friendly Giles Conrad Park. This park features 1.3 miles of paved walking path which travel the length of it along the west bank of the Ohio River and River Road. The trail loops around the sports facilities and playground, and offers exercise/fitness stations at various locations along its route. This is a perfect place for a quick workout with your canine bestie beside you, on his leash. The park’s 43-acres also feature spurs off the trails to overlooks above the river to provide walkers and their woofers spectacular views. If you’re looking for a bite to eat afterward, head to Agaves Mexican Restaurant where an icy tart Margarita or other beverage awaits you, and Fido can get some water and perhaps some of your nachos or burrito. ¡Woof-o Bueno!
