Dog Walking in Congers

Congers is a suburban hamlet within the town of Clarkstown, adjacent to 4 lakes and located on the Hudson River, about 20 miles north of New York City. In addition to historical attractions, Congers is home to parks and trails that are sure to please outdoors-loving folks and their pups. And should your furry friend become ill or injured, it’s reassuring to know that there are at least 6 veterinary hospitals within a few miles of the hamlet, including in Valley Cottage, Blauvelt and West Haverstraw. All of them are ready to help get her up and wagging in no time.

The Hook Mountain Heights Trail is a looped, dog-friendly trail that totals about 6 miles. Featuring a ridge with breathtaking views of the Hudson River below, plus riverside paths for a closer look, this trail is open year-round. The climb to the ridge is a challenge, but well worth the effort, and the rest of the trail is flat and easy, replete with wildlife. The occasional boggy area rewards hikers with many amphibian sightings, and the drier parts of the trail feature deer, fox and small mammals galore. Fido will have a field day of the senses searching out these denizens, and so will you! Those who appreciate flora will get their fill of vegetation to pique their interest, too! Woofderful!

Whatever your reason to be in the Congers area, be sure to explore the natural resources that abound here. You're sure to find lots both you and Fido will enjoy!

New City is Congers’ neighbor to the west, and it’s in this neighborhood of New City you’ll find the Kennedy Dells County Park with its Off-Leash Dog Run. There are trails in the 180-acre park where you can wander with your fur-baby on leash or let him free in the fenced dog run. Either way, you and he will have a ball! The shaded trails are full of small mammals for him to “hunt,” with streams where he can splash and drink, too. Featuring both wooded areas and open fields, the park is bounded by Crum Creek where an old breached dam forms an impressive waterfall. Woofderful!

Full of wildlife like deer, fox and others, plus over 100 species of birds, this is a pawrrific spot for a walk with your fur-baby. Accessible via a parking lot on New Hempstead Road, the Lake Trail meanders through the woods and around 3 sides of the pond, with picnic tables at its end where you and your pup can enjoy a casual snack or meal in the fresh air. The access road, which loops back to the parking area, is the way to your car, or go back the way you came through the woods on the trail. Either way, this is a pawrfect park for a short but sweet encounter with nature for you and Fido! Arf!

The town of Valley Cottage, a neighbor of Congers, is home to the pawsome Rockland Lake State Park, which welcomes pups from October 1st to March 31st. Located on the Hudson River, the park features trails with furbulous views of the Hudson River and the wildlife that abounds in the woods, along with vast grassy expanses that are perfect for walking, lying about or romping. Fur-pups must be leashed, but that won’t diminish the fun of sniffing out the small mammals scurrying about, or of enjoying the water’s edge around Rockland Lake. Many benches dot the landscape, and in the winter, you can try skiing and snowshoeing with Fido too! If you’re of a mind to enjoy a casual meal outdoors, take him over to Twin Pond’s Park on Massachusetts Avenue for a lunch in one of their picnic areas. In the winter, after a stroll around the park, you can watch the ice skaters on the pond!

Blauvelt is a town a few miles south of Congers, which is host to the Blauvelt State Park, almost 600 acres of forested land. This park is undeveloped and is primarily accessed by a hiking trail, with limited parking. Be sure to bring water for both you and your leashed fur-baby, as there are no restrooms or water. These mild deprivations are well worth the experiences you’ll have on the park’s trails, however. Besides lush flora and abundant wildlife and birds, the park features barktiful, spectacular views of the Hudson Valley and the River at one of its widest points. This is also where you’ll find Clausland Mountain with its hiking and 2 miles of nature trails pawrfect for your exploration with Fido!
