Mountainside is a tiny town of fewer than 10,000 people. Amenities for people with pups are readily available in larger adjacent communities. Mountainside lacks veterinarians, but dozens can be found within a twenty-mile radius. The city itself does not maintain many parks for you and your pup -- but don't fret just yet! Fortunately, there are many county and state parks in or near the city limits.  

Mountainside State Park will challenge you and your pup on a 1.6-mile loop trail up the mountainside. It is a short walk, but be ready for the climb -- hikers have remarked that it has its challenging spots. There are a few benches to rest on the way. The climb rewards you with an overlook of trees and the skyline of NYC. Don't fur-get to snap some pics from the top!

More hiking adventure can be found at Watchung Reservation. Watchung has miles of designated trails. Be careful to know your trail before you start out. Some hikers complain that some of the trails are not well-marked. Watchung has over 2,000 acres of nature in the heart of one of the most densely populated places in the country.  This beautiful oasis of nature is found in the tiny town of Mountainside. One of its trails takes hikers around the gorgeous Lake Surprise. This lake is a haven for many kinds of waterfowl. This trail is a good day's hike of eleven miles. Be sure to pack water for you and your pup for an adventure into the wilderness.

    #3 Morristown

    Morristown is located eighteen miles north of Mountainside. Lewis Morris Dog Park is the pawfect place for pups to make new pals. This dog park has a paved playground completely enclosed for some freedom from the leash. A second paved enclosure is the small dog spot. This dog park gets some complaints from people because of the pavement. Dogs don't complain, though! The ground  is easier to keep clean. A dog may not need a nail trim if they play on this kind of surface. The dog park doesn't have places for the human companions to sit, though. Water is close by, but still a walk away from your pup. Waste stations are adequate, so bring some of your own baggies just in case.
