As a small and quiet residential community, Saw Mill Valley is perfect if you want to step away from busy roads and take your pet on a walk set away from cars and pedestrians. As Horsham is just outside of Philadelphia, its climate is very similar. Summers are hot and humid while winters are chilly and snowy. Check the forecast before you go out for your walk to ensure optimal weather. During the summer, head out in the morning before it gets too hot, but wait until later in the day during the winter so that overnight ice has melted.
This 12-acre area is mostly flat and is perfect for a walk with dogs of any age. You can easily make your walk as long or as short as you want while enjoying manicured lawns and pretty trees. Try to stick to the sidewalks and greenways though and avoid walking through the middle of roads and parking lots as much as you can.
If you want to take your pet to a larger park, you can trek outside of the neighborhood. The southern entrance to Saw Mill Valley gives easy access to the Horsham Power Line Trail, a 5-mile paved trail that takes you to different parts of the town. There are even several benches along the route in case you need to rest for a moment. You can head north on the trail to Jarret Road Park, a sprawling public lawn, or make your way south to Lukens Park, a large park with a playground and walking trails.
