If you're seeking dog-friendly activities in and around Ballston Lake, you're in luck, because there are plenty of them! You and your dog won't want to miss out on the Zim Smith Mid-County Trail in northeastern Ballston Lake. This 9.2-mile trail has an asphalt, crushed stone, and dirt surface, and it's ideal for dog walking, biking, inline skating, snowmobiling, and much more.
