Nestled in alongside the Tuscawaras River, Navarre is a beautiful spot to visit with your pup, full of trails, waterways and green spaces to explore. With the town covering just 2 square miles, it is easy to navigate on foot with your best bud on a lead alongside you. If your pooch should fall ill, there is an animal clinic in town that would be happy to help.
For an easy and pleasant trail walk along the river, head to the Craig Pitman Memorial Park where you will find the trailhead to the Congressman Ralph Regula Towpath Trail. This trail is 25 miles out-and-back, so keep track of how far you have travelled so you can make it back the same way! Dogs are permitted here, but keep your pup leashed and always pick up after him.
On the other side of town is John Glenn Grove, and another trailhead to the network of the Canal Towpath trails that run throughout the area. This park has picnic facilities, a restroom, playground and plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy some sunshine. Check out the statue here of John Glenn, an Ohio man who was a war pilot, an astronaut and U.S. Senator.
