Middlefield is a village within Geauga County, Ohio and is surrounded by many beautiful recreation areas and trails that you can enjoy with your dog. With two vet clinics and a pet hospital in Middlefield, you can be assured your dog is in safe hands while you are exploring all that this puptown has to offer.
The Maple Highlands Trail is a major drawcard to this area, travelling a total of 20 miles from Chardon in the north down past Middlefield, to the Swine Creek Reservation in the South. A 0.5-mile section of the trail runs right through town and is a great way to get around. You can then continue walking out-and-back as far as you like for a really good stretch of the legs! There are maps available online, so it is worth sourcing a copy that details the distance and trailhead information. Keep your pup on a lead while you enjoy this multi-use path, and take water and cleanup bags with you.
The two largest parks in Middlefield, Eagle Park and Mineral Lake Park, are lovely places to bring the whole family. You will need to keep your pet leashed, but with plenty of open grassy space for games, lakes to walk around, playgrounds for the kids, and picnic areas to enjoy, your pooch will love spending time with you at one of Middlefield’s community parks.
You and your pet will love your stay in
Middlefield, so grab your lead and head out to one of the fantastic nearby
trails and enjoy a day out together.
The 139-acre Chickagami Park in nearby Parkman is seven miles
south of Middlefield and sits within the headwaters of the Grand River
watershed. It has three lovely walking trails where you can bring your pup and
wander amongst the woodlands, wetlands and across streams. The Griswold Creek
Trail is an easy asphalt trail at 0.2 miles, and the slightly longer Evergreen
Trail is 0.3 miles and also asphalt. For a little more of a challenge, the
Summit Trail is on rougher terrain and extends 0.5 miles. You need to keep your
pup leashed here, but he will love checking out the varying landscape and
getting out and about amongst the trees with you. There are restrooms, picnic areas and shelters at Chickagami Park.
