Folks in Linn are not in that much of a hurry. Their little town is surrounded by the rich landscape of Missouri farmlands and forests. Three veterinary clinics serve dogs, cats, and the assorted barnyard fauna. Specialty services must wait for a trip to one of the "big" cities like Jefferson City or even Columbia.
The three parks are mostly a green patch at the corner of a couple of town's roads. Linn City Park has some open green spaces and a few picnic sites. Residents gather for some of the annual festivities for the 4th of July.
People and pups who want to get out of town and enjoy an even more natural experience can journey less than twenty miles north to Painted Rock Conservation Area. This state property is the site of Native American settlements dating back 1,500 years. The area is made up of 1,480 acres set aside for conservation and recreation. Many people come here to hunt deer, birds, and small game. Camping is allowed here, but it is primitive. Those who like to "ruff" it with tent and backpack camping visit this idyllic forest of Missouri hardwood trees like oak and walnut.
The Osage River also intersects the property, and anglers enjoy the many species of fish which inhabit this body of water. The Osage Scenic Bluff Trail makes for a perfect walk outdoors with your canine pal. This almost two-mile-long looped trail follows the river and crosses two boardwalks. The trail is mostly level terrain and makes for an easy hike. Hunting dogs run free on the property, but a leash is required for other pups.
Loose Creek is seven miles west of Linn. Bernard Bruns Conservation Area has seventy-seven acres of forest awaiting a pup and person looking for some outdoor adventure. This state-owned property is the destination for people and pups on the hunt for a secluded spot to pitch a tent or roll out a blanket. Come prepared if visiting Bruns because there are no conveniences within the conservation area. This beautiful piece of forested ground includes access to the Maries River. Back in civilization, a stop in at Annie's Station Restaurant will fill the belly with some good home cooking. This restaurant is dog-friendly. The outdoor deck will make you and your canine dining comfortable. The restaurant is open for lunch Tuesday to Friday and for dinner on Friday and Saturday.
Jefferson City is twenty-one miles west of Linn. Your Molly or Leo will have a pawfect day at North Jefferson City Dog Park! This pup play area will put a bit more wiggle and waggle into your pup's demeanor. The fully fenced spot lets that leash come off for some running with a pack of new furry pals. The dog park has two sections with one being reserved for safer small dog play. The dog park ground is a mix of grass and dirt. Watch out for mud after a hard rain! Drinking water is on-site. A few benches keep the human companions relaxed. The city requires registration to use it.
Owensville is thirty-four miles east of Linn. Take a break and head on over with your favorite canine to the White Mule Winery. This picturesque turn-of-the-century farmhouse sits on Highway 50 and graces acres and acres of rich farmland. Grapes can be seen growing in rows upon rows extending into the horizon. A person with a pup may sit at the outdoor tables and sip samples or perhaps share a bottle with a (human!) companion. On the weekends, White Mule operates a restaurant which serves up some sumptuous steaks and fried chicken. Also, the winery has a bed and breakfast for those serene getaways.
Hermann is thirty-nine miles north of Linn. Bick's Gasthaus on Goethe Street will make you and your pup its special guests! This dog-friendly, quaint inn has a suite ready for you and your furry family member. The inn will accommodate one pup of no more than 25 pounds for an additional charge of $25 per night. It is advisable to make reservations far in advance of your intended stay. While visiting Hermann, have some deli-style sandwiches served at Swiss Meat & Sausage Company. This butchery makes up its own blends of meat for bratwurst and sausages. Five outdoor tables seat you and your canine pal for a delicious lunch.
The South Point neighborhood in Washington is an hour's drive east of Linn. Your pup deserves a day of play and exercise sans leash! This pawesome dog park gives your pup that well-deserved day of fun time with some canine buddies! South Point Bark Park has two wholly fenced, grassy plots just for your pooch. A separate section is dedicated to smaller dogs. The dog park features many benches for the human folk. A few shade trees keep those two-legged species comfortable on those hot summer days. Don't forget to bring along the water -- water fountains have yet to be installed on the property. Waste stations are stocked with doggie waste baggies for convenient clean-ups.
