In times past, the borough of Mount Arlington was the haunt of wealthy New Yorkers looking for a day outing. This little community sits on New Jersey's largest body of freshwater, Lake Hopatcong. The lake attracted many wealthy people to its shores and to the amusement park on Bertrand Island. Today, Bertrand Island is the site of upscale housing development -- the amusement park is now just a faded memory or historical note. The borough still maintains its municipal beach, where its residents can gain access to the lake.  

The borough has five dedicated park places where a person and a leashed pup can get some healthy exercise. Veterinary care is not immediately available within the borough, but quality care can be found less than five miles away in the neighboring community of Landing. Also, this borough sits in the shadow of New York City, where any kind of specialized veterinary care can be found.

Berkshire Valley State Wildlife Management Area occupies the eastern section of the borough. This large tract of virtually untouched wetlands and hardwood forest has no marked trails. Still, it has paths that attract many hikers willing to take the risk of getting lost for the views and the wild experience. Some folks hunt (permit required) and camp on the premises. A leashed pup can accompany a fearless hiker on the exploration. Bears have been sighted on the grounds, so take some precautions.

Safely back in town, Davy's Dogs offers a person and a well-behaved leashed pup some outdoor dining. Davy's is a local favorite that serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
