Dog Walking in Butler

The tiny borough of Butler is an idyllic community committed to preserving the natural beauty of the forests and river lands. Dog owners have access to two veterinary clinics in town that can take care of most routine and emergency needs. Neighboring larger communities have numerous opportunities for more specialized care. Six parks are located within the borough's boundaries. Some are patches of green space set aside by the borough and are perfect for a picnic or short stroll with a leashed friend.

Two of the parks, Butler Raceway and Butler Forest Preserve, are among the properties managed by the Passaic River Coalition (PRC). The PRC is a non-profit association that manages properties located in several counties and a  half-dozen municipalities for conservation and recreational purposes. The parks in their management have scenic river access and various chances for a person and a leashed pup to do some outdoor walking. The Yapewi Park, a borough parkland, has recently been brought under the PRC management. Yapewi is a tiny green space with a pleasant trail that invites a person and leashed canine companion to explore the banks of the Butler River. It is a spot popular with walkers and anglers alike.

More intense hiking can be attempted at the Norvin Green State Forest. Norvin is less than four miles north of Butler. It has ten marked trails embraced by woods and natural land formations. The trails vary in length and difficulty -- the shortest is one mile long, while the longest is five-and-a-half miles long. 

For visitors and residents of Butler with a four-legged companion, new outdoor adventures are never lacking!

Morristown is located twenty miles south of Butler. Lewis Morris Dog Park gives pups a pawfect way to start or end a day. This fully fenced dog park is one of the amenities to be found in the scenic Lewis Morris County Park. It has a section reserved for small dogs as well as a large dog area. The surface of the dog park makes some of the two-legged folks uncomfortable because it is paved and not soft mushy grass or dirt. It keeps those paws clean and those nails polished, though! Water is not immediately available but the county park has many restrooms in case you leave without a water bottle. Shade and benches are at a premium.
