Utica has had a varied history over the years. From a stop along the trade routes, to a textile manufacturing center, to the east coast’s hotbed of organized crime, to today: a multicultural city that’s population is growing again! Utica has a rich history and a rich natural landscape, and it’s no surprise that people are flocking to it. With one animal hospital in town, your dog will always be well taken care of.

The Utica Marsh Canalway Trail is an easy, though long, walk. The full trail is 13.5 miles, but as an out and back trail it can be as long as you want it to be. Just turn back sooner if you’d like a shorter walk! If you want more of a challenge, the Utica Marsh Loop is a moderate hike. Keep your dog on leash and on the path to preserve your chance to see the wildlife this 4.5 mile trail is known for!

    #4 Cornhill


    Kopernik Park is a gorgeous example of a small community space. Utica has mastered the art of making a small park into a big escape from the world. A statue of Copernicus at the park's center, accompanied by an educational plaque. It elevates the simple park, outfitted with a few benches and wide, expansive lawns that sometimes host community concerts, into a retreat. Don’t leave Cornhill without visiting the nearby O’Conner Park. This small park is a great place to relax under a tree, or pretend to lose yourself on a short path throughout.
