Dog Walking in Goshen

The village of Goshen is the county seat of Orange County, New York, and sits about 50 miles northwest of New York City. This village has a long history of horse racing, and is home to the oldest horse racing facility still in use in the United States. Throughout this village, you can find many parks and trails, some of which used to be used for horse racing, but are now free for anyone to use. There are also two veterinary clinics in town, making it a cinch to raise a happy, healthy puppy in Goshen.

If you’re looking for somewhere to get some fresh air and exercise with your doggo, you don’t need to go far! The Orange Heritage Trail passes right through the village of Goshen. This trail is supported by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Organization, converting unused railroads into beautiful pathways for anyone to use. The trail is about 15 miles long, starting in Goshen and continuing southeast all the way to the town of Harriman. Along the paved pathway, you will pass by many parks, wooded areas and rolling meadows. Leashed dogs are welcome, just don’t forget the waste bags!

When it’s time for a treat, head over to Jimmy Changas, in the village center of Goshen. Here you can dig into some tex-mex food next to your best pal at one of the five outdoor pet friendly tables.

With all of these pet-friendly places to explore, your pup doesn’t need to miss out on the fun in Goshen!
