If you are looking for a lovely local trail walk, the Hummelstown Nature Trail is on the western side of town by the Swatara Creek. Pets are welcome to enjoy the trail on-lead and will love sniffing their way through the creekside scrub and woodland. From here, take the bridge over the creek to adjacent Schiavoni Park, where there are more trail walking opportunities and plenty of open space. There is also a free canoe/kayak launch at Shiavoni Park for those looking for a place to get out on the water for a paddle with pup.

Cocoa Beanery is a must-visit here. This coffee shop loves pets and offers doggie treats for sale at the counter. After you have refueled with a hot drink, ice cream or light lunch, take an on-lead walk with your pup along the property. PJ Scoops is open during the warmer months, and has over 55 flavors of ice cream to indulge in, or for an Italian-inspired feast head to Jo-Jo Pizzeria & Restaurant. Perking Point is another great little pet-friendly coffee shop with a coffee flavor to suit any taste. For popular breakfast or lunch option, Panera Bread has a range of soups, salads, sandwiches and pastries.

With plenty more to see and do here, you are both sure to love your visit!

    Head about four miles south of Hummelstown to the northern area of Middletown to explore the Swatara Water Trail with your pup. The Swatara Creek is often used for canoe or kayak adventures – so if you have a water-loving pet, why not give this a go? Otherwise, there is a great trail along the creek that follows an abandoned rail line. Keep an eye out for a small cave and old quarry sites as you wander through. You must keep your pup leashed here as there are many species of wildlife that call the Swatara Creek area home. Stick to the trail and always clean up any mess your furry adventure-seeker leaves.

    Twenty minutes drive northeast takes you to Wildwood Park in Harrisburg. It is worth the little trip, as this is a truly magical park and very dog-friendly. You and your pup will love taking a walk through the trees, along the well-maintained boardwalks through the marshland and around Wildwood Lake. There is over six miles of trails here - so you aren't short on options! You can also stop for a fish in the lake along the way, or unpack a picnic lunch at one of the benches. The trail walks are all easy, but cover various terrain so wear appropriate shoes. Your pup needs to stay leashed, and have a stash of clean up bags handy.
