Chardon is a city in Geauga County, Ohio, approximately 10 minutes drive south of Lake Erie in the Great Lakes area. There is an animal hospital and a vet clinic in town, so you can be assured your pup will stay safe and well during your visit.

While in town, take a walk along the central section of the Maple Highlands Trail. The best access to the trail is at the 32-acre Mountain Run Station park in the east of Chardon, where there are facilities including parking, picnic areas, restrooms and shelters. From Mountain Run Station to Taylor Wells Road is 1.8 miles, but you can go out-and-back as far as you like. From the park, there is a connecting trail known as the Chardon Run Way which is an additional 0.4 miles. You will need to keep your pet leashed here, but he will love taking a good walk along here with you.

There are four pup-tastic restaurants to seek out in Chardon. Square Bistro sources much of their produce from the local area and is renowned for serving up classic quality fare. Chardon BrewWorks serves pub-grub style meals and is a great place to relax over a cold drink. For a causal bite to eat while you are out and about, Beans coffee shop and bistro is the place to go, or if you are just after a sweet treat, there is a Dairy Queen in town for a delicious ice cream. All of these places welcome dogs at one of the outside tables.

There is so much to see, so many beautiful nature areas around here – this is just the start. You will both love visiting Chardon.

    #4 Kirtland

    The Holden Arboretum in Kirtland, seven miles west of Chardon, has over 20 miles of trails to wander with your pup over a massive 3,600 acres! The trails take you through both native forest and well-manicured gardens, which have doggie waste bag stations throughout so you are never caught short. Trails range in length and difficulty, from the easy Strong Acres Loop at 0.75 miles through flat meadows, up to the 2.8-mile Old Valley Trail which includes steep stairs and rougher terrain. For the brave visitor, take a wander along the Murch Canopy Walk perched 65 feet above the forest floor – the view from up there is well worth the trek! Dogs are permitted on-lead throughout the grounds, except in the Myrtle S. Holden Wildflower Garden.
