If there's one place that you can't miss when you head to Bradford, it's Allegheny National Forest. The North Entry point is right near the northern edge of Bradford, making it easily accessible to anyone looking for a great time outdoors. The park itself has everything--swimming, fishing, boating, picnicking, camping, and rest areas, and more! If you want it, this park has it. Dog lovers will particularly enjoy the great trails this park has to offer. Start out easy by exploring Marilla Bridges Trail. This trail is a simple loop that's only nine tenths of a mile long! It's a great warm-up for a longer hike, or a short hike for dogs who aren't used to going the distance. Looking for more of a challenge? Tracy Ridge Hiking Trail System could be the answer you've been searching for. This 8.9 mile loop takes you through varied terrain, from hills to riverside strolling and back again. It's a moderate hike, so be prepared!
There's plenty of dog-friendly activity to be had in Bradford!
Rock City Park is an eighteen minute drive from Bradford, across the border in Olean, New York. This drive is well worth it, because you just won't find another hiking place like it! There are several trails with unique difficulty ratings, so you won't get into a challenge you can't finish. The waterways have created interesting rock formations over the years! There's a three-seasons waterfall which is the star of many great pics! Your dog is welcome to join you on this adventure as long as you keep them on leash, and you bring in your own baggies to ensure the trails stay clean.
