Dog Areas in Bolton

2 Eateries

Bolton is a historical town not far from Boston that was once a thriving rural community with plenty of dairy farms and orchards to keep the local economy going strong. Today, the area has been transformed into a largely residential community with plenty of single-family homes built on large plots of open land, pawfect for your growing family!

As the community has changed over time to become more modern, the residents have prioritized conservation efforts throughout Bolton and the surrounding towns, creating a network of stunningly beautiful preserves and refuges for wildlife and plants. These conservation areas are increasingly popular with dog walkers who enjoy a variety of serene places to exercise their pups. 

As the landscape changed, residents largely had to move to work outside of the town's borders. However, there are still some large orchards that continue to thrive in Bolton. The homes found in Bolton follow a true New England and Colonial style, adding to the already strong character of this amazing town in Massachusetts.

There is only one animal hospital in the town of Bolton. However, there are several more animal clinics available to meet all of your pup's needs in the surrounding areas of Hudson and Harvard.

    #1 Bolton

    The town of Bolton is home to many conservation areas, but one of the largest and most impressive is the Bolton Flats Wildlife Management Area. This area has a slow-moving river with steep banks and several floodplains. There was once a lot of sand in the area, but it has since been mined away over the years. The area is home to hundreds of turtles that you are sure to catch a glimpse of if you are careful, including several endangered and threatened species. Just downstream is the Oxbow National Wildlife Area, which is 700 acres of pure natural wetlands and forests. Dogs are permitted to hike these areas with you as long as they wear a leash.

    #2 Downtown

    Hudson is just a few minutes outside of Bolton and is another growing town with a strong passion for conservation. Tripps Pond is a popular 8-acre fishing spot where you can also just walk around with your dog on-leash and enjoy the scene. Just down the road is the Assabet River Rail Trail, a natural park area and multi-use trail built along abandoned railroad tracks. This particular railroad bed was active from 1853 until 1980.  If you get hungry after checking out these trails, Slater’s is just a few minutes to the north of Hudson back in Bolton. It is the pawfect place to grab a casual bite with your furry friend.

    #5 Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge


    The Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge is almost 4 square miles right in the middle of where Hudson, Maynard, Stow, and Sudbury all meet. The area was used previously by the U.S. Army as a training space, but was signed over as public use land in 2000. Today, the refuge has many wetlands and pools, surrounded by thick forests. Hiking with your pup in this area is a truly enchanting experience as you observe the local wildlife living virtually untouched in this oasis. The refuge is intended to help with migrating bird populations. Dogs joining you in the refuge should be well-mannered and leashed at all times.
