Auburn in Maine is a small town that provides some of the best scenes around. From the gorgeous views of Mt. Apatite to the roaring rapids of the Androscoggin River, there's no better postcard landscape. Thanks to all the natural beauty around town, the area has designated plenty of outdoor places for its two-legged and four-legged residents.
Mt. Apatite is a small mountain, but provides a large area and different ponds for you and your pup to explore. The area is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and is known for the miles of different trails that extend throughout and along the ponds. There's also access points for swimming for humans and pups. It's one of the best places to explore nature with Fido, and has great amenities like trash bins, clean-up stations, and benches near the parking area.
If you're looking for a short, but pretty walk, head to the Auburn Riverwalk. The 1.2-mile trail is made of asphalt, with scenic views of the Androscoggin River, water fountains, benches, and trash bins along the path.
There's also two animal hospitals, and acres upon acres of land for you and Fido to explore in Auburn.
Central Auburn can get pretty busy, from bustling streets to active shopping centers. Despite the heavy traffic, Moulton Park still provides a quiet and serene place for you and Fido to enjoy a relaxing walk next to the river. With gorgeous views of the soothing rapids, the park has access to the river for fishing and swimming, and also includes a large open area that's surrounded by dense trees. Your pup must remain on a leash, but can also enjoy water fountains, a clean-up station, trash bins, and benches. For visitors staying in the neighborhood, the Munroe Inn provides old-timey rooms that are pet-friendly to any number and size of dogs for a small fee.
