The small town of Boyce, located in western Clarke County, is a community that's steeped in history. There's an arboretum in the area with trails where you and your fur baby can go exploring together. If you need veterinary care for your pup, you'll find an animal hospital in town.
Go on an outdoor adventure with your canine pal at the G. Richard Thompson Wildlife Management Area, located about 19 miles south of Boyce. This 4,000-acre hardwood forest is open for hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, and hiking. Dogs need to be on a leash unless engaged in hunting activities.
Take the family for a day at Rockland Park. This furrific 219-acre facility is just 13.1 miles southwest of town. There are picnic areas, a disc golf course, walking trails, and a playground here. Dogs on a leash may accompany you.
Connect to the Appalachian Trail from the Paris Trailhead off John Mosby Highway that's located about 10.5 miles southeast of Boyce. You can travel southwest for a moderately easy run with gentle grades or head northeast on the "Roller Coaster" portion of the trail. Dogs are welcome but must stay on a leash. Bring water and waste bags with you.
Boyce is located near several outdoor recreational facilities that you and Fido can enjoy together.
