Dog Walking in Burnsville

“Head down south to the land of the pines” to relax and rewind with your furry friend. Burnsville is a growing, mountainous town surrounded by nature, and popular local and tourists destinations. While not as grandiose and hip as it’s neighbor, Asheville, Burnsville offers a wide variety of activities for passers-by and puppers-by. Two local vets are found in the town center where your pup will be warmly welcomed and cared for.


Burnsville is nestled in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains, and features the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Appalachian Mountains. Crabtree Falls Loop Trail offers a 2.5 mile hike which is popular for its tranquil trails and waterfall. Keep your pup on a leash no longer than 6 foot long in public areas and under voice control while hiking the backtrails.

Visit the charming town square, where you’ll find an old-timey plaza surrounded by brick buildings dating back decades. Stop by the Blind Squirrel Brewery to feast on local favorites while Fido watches the town go by on the outdoor sidewalk seating.

Burnsville is a one-stop-shop for you and your pup to discover the southern belle charm; where the welcome is sweet, but the tea is sweeter!
