Leasburg is a town of fewer than five hundred permanent residents. Folks need to look to the bigger cities like Steelville or Cuba for veterinary services. Routine and emergency care is just a short drive away.
The main attraction in Leasburg is the Onondaga State Park. This Missouri Park showcases one of the most spectacular Missouri caves. Tours of the awe-inspiring cave are offered daily. Your canine companion can't go on the cave tour, but the state park does not fail to provide for a family with a pup (or two). Camping at Onondaga is dog-friendly. Your Molly or Leo is welcome to stay with the family on the campout. Campsites include water and electric if desired. Restrooms complete with showers are just a short walk away from tent campsites. Your pup must stay on no less than a ten-foot leash while in the state park.
You and your furry family member will also want to try out the five dedicated trails. The Blue Heron Trail is partially paved and accessible for those folks with disabilities. It begins at the Visitor Center. Blue Heron is a short, half-mile path that winds through the forest and past the cave entrance. The trail is rated as moderately difficult because of sections of rock, wet spots, and uphill climbing. The other trails all vary in length, from less than a tenth of a mile to three miles. Your Molly or Leo will need a leash while exploring the trails with you. Good shoes, too, are a must since most of the trails will involve scaling a few hills.
