Want to know a fun fact about Coeburn, VA? Its name derives from two influential people: a man named W. W. Coe, a prolific engineer who worked for the N&W Railroad, and W.E. Burns, a judge who presumably lived and worked in the area.
Your pup probably doesn't care about the town's origins, though. Furtunately, Coeburn is home to a few furrific dog-friendly places that your precious pal will love exploring! There are no vets within town limits, but you can find quality vet care just a short, 15-minute drive away in Wise, Virginia.
You can start off your adventures in the heart of town, in Bark Camp Recreation Area. There is a lot to be said about a place where the biggest complaint is that there is no cell service! Peace and quiet are in abundance here as you walk the trails and take in the beauty of nature. It is the pawfect place for a total digital detox.
Red Fox Trail is a natural and historic walking trail where you can come and learn about the Killing Rock. It is a little more than a mile long and it's pretty intense, so come prepared for a workout!
If you and your log love the great outdoors, Coeburn is the pawfect day trip destination!
Are you and your hound hankering for a good, long hike? Hop in the car and come on over to the Devil's Loop Trail! This hike is considered difficult, so if your pooch is more of a couch pup-tato, hike the Little Stony National Recreation Trail instead. It is a less intensive trail and is part of the Rails-to-Trails system. The views are worth the effort that it takes to get to them. Just remember to bring a leash and lots of drinking water for your trip. You will need to bring doggie waste bags so that you can clean up after your pup as well.
Norton, Virginia is about nine miles from Coeburn. Sure, you could come to visit Flag Rock Recreation Area for its awesome hiking trails. It has over 1,000 acres -- 25 of which are undeveloped -- to explore. However, the best reason to come is that it is the home of the "Woodbooger", a Bigfoot-esque creature that supposedly lurks these quiet woods. Come sniff out the tracks for yourself! Or, just pose for a selfie by the Woodbooger statue. Remember that you will need to keep your dog on a leash, and you will want to have lots of drinking water, too.
Need to get out of the woods and return to civilization? The Clear Creek Park is a four-acre park that's more developed than the other parks we've featured here. You will find playgrounds, picnic areas, and even a pavilion that you can rent. There is even an outdoor classroom. You and your dog will love relaxing in this peaceful spot on a weekend morning. You have to keep your dog on a leash at all times -- yeah, we know, that's not much fun, but it's the law! Please remember to always clean up after your pet. You will want to carry water with you as well.
Norton City Park is the center of so much activity that you and the whole family will be sure to make new friends. All around the edge of the park is a nice walking trail. In the center, there are playgrounds and picnic areas. It is the pawfect way to get to know the city and some of the people in it as well. You will have to keep your fur baby on a leash. There are fountains and running water, but you may need to bring your dog's water bowl. Make sure that you always clean up after your dog as well.
There are times when you really just want -- or need -- a place for your dog to play and socialize safely off-leash. If you are in Coeburn, the closest dog park is about forty miles away. Dogwood Park at Kingsport is the pawfect spot for letting your dog off his leash so that he can be a dog for a bit. You do have to register and show proof of vaccinations in order to play. The park provides clean water stations, and the trash cans also have doggie waste bags. All you need to do is just come and play!
