Myrtle Grove Wildlife Management Area is a one-of-a-kind place to visit with Fido! Located in the forest bottomlands of Mattawoman Creek, the area covers more than 4,460 acres of natural and man-made wetlands and forests. This is a prime spot to do some wildlife watching! Pooches are welcome but should stay on their leashes at all times. Apart from walking trails, the wildlife area also offers ponds for fishing and even a shooting range. Keep this in mind if you have a timid pup!
Bensville Park in White Plains is another pet-friendly park not far from Pomfret. Alongside playgrounds and sports fields, this park offers plenty of trails to explore with a leashed pup. Beware, though -- some trails are used by cyclists as well, so if your pup doesn't like sharing the path, plan your adventure accordingly.
