Hi,My name is Lu and I love dogs. I've developed a fondness for cats over the years, but there is no question that I am a dog person. They just fill my heart with a joy that hardly any other category of beings in the world can. Dogs have been a part of my family for most of my life and, while I do not yet have one of my own as an adult, I spend plenty of time with my sisters' and mom's dogs. I have gone on countless walks with the dogs in my life, and enjoyed almost all of them tremendously. I also have experience feeding, bathing, and brushing them. I'm new to the DMV area and am on the lookout for new friends, human and canine alike.Thanks!

Dog Walking in Jefferson

The interesting thing about Jefferson, Maryland is that it was laid out in 1774, but didn't become incorporated until 1831. Only one year later, the residents decided they didn't need a town government, so the community was unincorporated again in 1832.

Today, this tiny town is still unincorporated, and is home to a little more than 2,000 people. If you and Fido are hunting for a quiet, rural community that's still in close proximity to metropolitan areas like Frederick and Hagerstown, look no further than Jefferson, Maryland!

Take a walk through the historic Gathland State Park in Jefferson. Bring a leash and lots of water, because there is so much to see here that you will want to spend the whole day. Walk through battlefields, see the War Correspondent Arch, and stroll through Appalachian National Scenic Trail. Some of these monuments have been here since the 1800s.

If you want something quieter, take a walk through Cambridge Farms Park. This is a dog-friendly green space with a few water fountains, play grounds, and trails to roam. The park isn't very busy, which makes it perfect for an afternoon stroll. 

Jefferson might be small, but that doesn't mean there's nothing for you and your dog to do here!
