Dog Areas in Augusta, NJ

1 Trail

Augusta is a community in Frankford Township in Sussex County, New Jersey, and it's home to nearly 900 people. Each year, Augusta hosts the New Jersey State Fair and the Sussex County Farm and Horse Show, so there's an influx of visitors a few times each year. Augusta is in a geologically interesting position, nestled in between the Kittatinny Mountains and the New Jersey Highlands. The area also lies on the Ordovician Martinsburg Formation, which was formed in about 450 million B.C. Whether you're visiting Augusta or you live there year-round, there are all sorts of ways to enjoy the area, and many of them happen to be dog-friendly!

The Sussex Branch Trail is an 18-mile trail that runs through Sussex County. You can access the trail from southwestern Augusta, and it's popular with inline skaters, cyclists, joggers, and dog walkers. Your dog will have to remain on a leash while they trek the trail with you, and along the way, you'll see parklands, forests, and many other natural wonders. Many of those who visit the Sussex Branch Trail say the highlight of the journey is stopping into Kittatinny Valley State Park, where you can spot more than 200 species of birds. When you're not hiking the Sussex Branch Trail, you and Molly can make the short drive to a nearby off-leash park.
