The town of Layton rests between the Thurston and Francis Mountains to the east, and the Farmington Bay to the west. Thanks to its prime outdoor location, there are plenty of activities for swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, and camping. Most of these activities are dog-friendly and include multiple inner city parks that allow dogs, as well as 7 veterinarians right in town.

The best place to experience all the outdoor joys of Layton is the Fernwood Recreation Site. It's located in the foothills of Thurston Mountain, with parking and trails leading up to the site. There's picnic tables, open fields for multi-purpose uses, and barbeque stations. The park connects to two different trails, an unnamed one that leads to the South Fork Kays Creek for fishing, and the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, a 100-mile trail that leads north and will one day connect to Nephi.

In-town, there's a fenced-in dog park known as the Kay's Crossing Dog Park. The area is nestled away among trees and buildings, with a large grassy area for pups to run freely in. There's a double-gated entrance, water fountains, clean-up stations, and trash bins.

Whether you're looking for a hiking excursion, or just some time outside, Layton has all the options for you and your pup to enjoy.
