Byrnes Mill is a small, rural community. There are no veterinary clinics here, but quality vet care can be found in the neighboring larger towns of House Springs and High Ridge. Byrnes Mill has one city park consisting of 18 acres and a few picnic sites along the Big River. The Grandpa Trail takes a person and leashed dog through some heavily wooded parts of the park.
People with pups will enjoy a trip to nearby Don Robinson State Park. This state park is located ten miles south of the city, and features 843 acres of largely wooded land with sandstone bluffs and gorgeous hardwood trees. Two trails are located in the state park, which are rated as moderately difficult. Sandstone Canyon Trail is a four-mile loop that takes hikers and a leashed dog up some pretty steep hills as the trail winds through heavy forest. The first .6 miles is paved, but the rest is packed dirt and natural rock. A connector trail halfway lets hikers shorten the journey. Labarque Hills Trail is 2.4 miles long and offers a bench at the summit of its climb.
Byrnes Mill is a pawfect place where people and their pups can enjoy some outdoor activities together! Just make sure to follow the leash laws here; those who break the rules can face a fine of up to $500. Residents of Byrnes Mill must register their pets with the city and pay an application fee. Those with spayed or neutered pets pay a reduced fee.
