Dog Walking in Spiveys Corner

Small, family-friendly and neighborly, Spivey’s Corner, NC is conveniently located fifty minutes away from Raleigh and just thirty minutes from Fayetteville.

The town has one loud and proud claim to fame -- Spivey’s Corner is the former home of the National Hollerin’ Contest. Hollerin’ has a long and interesting history, having been used for centuries as a form of long-distance communication. A good hollerer can have their voice heard from acres away, and Spivey’s Corner has its own special genre, the Sampson County Holler, characterized by rapid shifts between natural and falsetto tones. Unfortunately, the contest was suspended in 2016, but the town’s several champion hollerers are determined to keep the art alive.

There’s no designated dog park or even a community park in Spivey’s Corner, but that doesn’t mean that you and your buddy are bound to be bored! If your pooch is a fan of the great outdoors, you’re in luck -- the town is just a bone's throw away from some furrifically fur-friendly hiking options. While Spivey’s Corner doesn’t have much in the way of doggy dining options, you’ll find plenty of places to chow down in the surrounding area. And if your furry friend needs to run free, don’t fret -- you’ll find a couple of off-leash adventure options a little fur-ther afield!

The small town of Dunn has plenty to keep you and your buddy entertained! You’ll find a trailhead for the Dunn-Erwin Rail Trail just south of the Westhaven neighborhood, close to Tyler Park (another lovely spot for a leashed walk). The route stretches for ten miles between the Dunn and Erwin, and it’s pretty pawpular with local pooches and their people. It’s easy to see why -- the mile-long trail is both paved and flat, so it’s accessible for everyone from young pups to older furry friends. Afterward, why not stop in at Hamburger and Hot Dog Haven? This small diner does a great meatloaf, and wagging tails are welcome outside.

Raven Rock State Park is a real mutts-visit! The park sits along the Cape Fear River, in almost the dead center of North Carolina. Fitter furry friends in search of more of a challenge might consider the Campbell Creek Loop Trail, a densely forested trek that features a couple of steep inclines. If you’re out of breath just thinking about it, you’ll be glad to know that most of the other trails in the park are easy enough -- if you’re looking for a short walk, the American Beech Trail is a nice half-mile stroll. It’s worth taking the time to investigate the Raven Rock Loop Trail, though -- the views of the water from the Overlook have to be seen to be believed!

Historic and charming, the old railway town of Benson sits at the junction of I-95 and I-40, ruffly 12 minutes (or 7 miles) from Dunn. It’s also home to Benson Dog Park, a pawfect place to let your buddy lose the leash! There’s enough space in this three-acre, fenced-in area for even the most rambunctious of furballs to leap about to their heart's content, and there’s a separate small dog area, too, so your pooch can play and socialize be they big or little! Bags and water are provided, so all you need to do is BYOB (Bring Your Own Beast)!

Riverside Dog Park in Fayetteville is a real mutts-visit! Located right by the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens near the neighborhood of Riverbluff, this off-leash area is huge -- there’s plenty of room for your little tearaway to run around and tire themselves out. The area is well-shaded by mature trees, and tired owners are sure to appreciate the ample seating. Like the park in Benson, there’s a separate area for small dogs, and bags and water are provided. Careful, though -- the park doesn’t have great drainage, and you can expect to see puddles after it rains. You might want to bring a towel in case your buddy gets muddy!

If you’re looking for somewhere to dine with your doggo, you’re sure to find it in Historic Downtown Fayetteville! The area is chock full of fur-friendly eateries. For a pick-me-up, check out The Coffee Cup. They do a fabulous selection of tea, and their outdoor tables have great views of the clock tower. If you’re looking for something different, perch yourself on the patio at Blue Moon Cafe. Their brie-fig melt is excellent, and they’ll even put out a bowl of water for your pooch on a hot day! In the mood for something a little more up-market? Stop in at Sherefe and enjoy a great Greek salad al fresco with your canine companion.
