Dog Walking in Iron Mountain

Iron Mountain is a city in the scenic Upper Peninsula of Michigan that lies just across the northern Wisconsin border. Known for its mining history and for pasties, savory pastries that were first brought to the area by Cornish miners, it is also full of pawsome outdoor activities for you and your pup to enjoy. There is one veterinary clinic, the Iron Mountain Animal Hospital, that can meet all your pup’s medical needs.

One of the city’s best spots for dogs is City Park, also known as Iron Mountain Park. This 69-acre sanctuary on the west side of town includes sports facilities for bocce ball, tennis, soccer, football, skateboarding, and disc golf; a children’s play area; and large and small log pavilions. It also features sites of greater interest to furry visitors, such as a pond, two miles of groomed nature trails, cross-country skiing trails for winter fun, and a deer pen where curious canines can observe the herd safely from behind a fence. You will need to bring your own waste bags and water, but there are trash cans throughout the park for your convenience.

You and your pup won’t furget all the sights and smells you’ll take in at this wild and lovely spot.
