The unincorporated area of Orient is located about 15 miles northwest of Columbus. This small village is adjacent to a furrific natural area where you and your pup can go exploring together. The nearest veterinarian is just under two miles away in the community of Harrisburg.
Take your pooch on an outing in nature by heading about ten miles northwest to the Wagtail Trail in Batelle Darby Creek Metro Park. This packed earth pathway is dog-friendly, and it offers a moderate 1.6-mile hike through prairies, forest, and wetlands. Make sure to bring along some water and bags to clean up your pup's waste.
Another park with pawtastic trails is Derby Hills Park, located about 12 miles north of Orient. This 242-acre facility has walking trails that wind through the woods and wetlands here. After you get some exercise with your pup, enjoy a picnic at one of the tables in the park. Dogs on a leash are allowed to join you as long as they're under control and you pick up after them.
Take Fido for a drive about eight miles northeast of Orient to Henceroth Park to get some fresh air and exercise. There's a nature pathway that wanders through the woods and a separate walking/jogging trail. You can bring dogs on a leash when you visit this park.
Orient provides easy access to a range of outdoor adventures for dogs and their owners.
