Looking for a challenge to kick off your Pottsville tour right? The Second Mountain Trail is an out and back, 9.5 mile trail. You can make it shorter by turning around sooner, but it's quite a hike! The draw is the seasonal wildflowers and great view of the area. Keep your dog on leash, because you have to share the road with hikers, bikers, and even equestrians! Looking for something tamer? The JFK Memorial Pool is a great public park in Pottsville. It contains plenty more than just a pool; there are tennis courts, shaded seating under the gazebos, and a walking path through the area. Your dog is allowed to accompany you on leash, but is prohibited from the pool. Cool down under the trees or gazebo instead!
Pottsville is a vibrant community that makes canines king!
Eleven minutes from Pottsville is the community of Llewellyn. Central Llewellyn has two great parks. Llewellyn Fireman’s Grove is a peaceful place to walk a shy dog, and features a baseball field. When there isn’t a game in session, it’s a quiet place to get your steps in with your pup! Llewellyn Community Park offers a bit more if you’re looking for full family fun. It has a small playground and a basketball court. Dogs will be most interested in sniffing over every inch of the wooded walking paths. These tree lined paths help you feel like you’re really out in nature, even when you’re close to the playground!
