Potomac, Maryland was once a rural farming community, but it has been growing in population for the last 60 years, and is now a booming suburb of Washington D.C. All that old farming land has been put to good use,  and has been converted into dog-friendly parks and nature trails. With five veterinarians for Potomac's four-legged residents, it sure is a putastic place to be!

Potomac has proven its love for its dog residents with the Cabin John Dog Park, a large, 5-acre park that's completely fenced in for off-leash play. The park has a hilly, mulchy terrain and features separate dog areas for smaller and larger dogs. You'll also find exercise equipment, dog-sized water fountains, clean-up stations and access to the trails through the forested area inside the enclosures here.

What dog doesn't love nature? The best nature trail to adventure out on is the Great Falls: Billy Goat Trail, a dog-friendly hiking area that follows the Potomac River. The path has separate sections, with dogs only being allowed on sections B and C due to safety precautions. Fido must remain on a leash, but will have gorgeous views of the river, shore access, and scenic waterfalls.

Rufftastic in every way, Potomac knows how to serve Fido and all his outdoor exercise needs!

    #1 Travilah

    Along the southwestern border of this neighborhood runs the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park, a 184 mile state park that runs through 3 different states. Although there are trails throughout the park, the Potomac section only has about two miles of trails in the city, and they are open to humans and their dogs as long as pups remain on a leash. The trails run throughout the forested area, with picturesque views of the river and access to the shoreline, giving Fido a chance to play in some of the shallow pools on a hot day. Humans must come prepared with water and clean-up bags.

Both parks are dog-friendly to leashed pups, offering over 7.3 miles of trails and creek access. The parks are great for birdwatching and fishing opportunities, and although dogs may come on the creek's shoreline, they are not allowed in the water. Trash bins and benches are available throughout the park, but clean-up bags and water must be brought.
