What Estacada lacks in population, it makes up for in character. About 50 miles west of Mount Hood, this small town is full of vibrant festivals, live music, art, outdoor fun and craft beer. In the event that your pup needs medical attention or just a yearly check-up, Estacada has a veterinary clinic to care for your four-legged friend.
You and your leashed pup will love strolling Estacada’s charming and quaint downtown area. On your walk, be sure to notice the murals painted on buildings throughout the town. These amazing works of art depict the town’s history as a timber town, pioneers traveling through the area, and other historical scenes.
The Milo McIver State Park is home to Estacada’s only off-leash area. Located on the southwest side of the park, your dog will have plenty of room to romp and play in this huge unfenced section. Leashed dogs are welcome throughout the rest of the park. Hop on the Rivermill Trail that runs adjacent to the off-leash area and explore the nearly 5-mile loop. The park also has picnic areas, a boat ramp and a disc golf course. There’s a small fee for parking.
Another one of Estacada’s outdoor spaces you and your pooch will love is Timber Park. Your leashed dog is welcome to join you as you explore the natural open space, disc golf course and picnic areas. There’s also a boat ramp for access to the exquisite Estacada Lake.
After your day of fun and adventure, grab a bite to eat and a delicious craft beer at the Fearless Brewing where leashed dogs are welcome in the pub’s outdoor seating area.
Whether you’re a local or just visiting, you and your pup are sure to have a tail-waggin’ good time exploring Estacada!
