The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Galax



West Roaring Gap

Looking for a challenge? If you and your hound love hiking in a natural setting, we recommend that you take the time to visit the beautiful Stone Mountain Summit Trail. The trail is around 28 miles away from Galax, in West Roaring Gap, and it is a pretty difficult 3.6-mile hike that will take approximately 2 hours to complete. Your dog is welcome to follow you on this journey as long as he's wearing a leash no longer than six feet. Take plenty of water with you, as well as some snacks and waste bags. You and Fido will pawsitively love exploring this trail!



North Laurel Springs

New River State Park is located in North Laurel Springs, around 35 miles away from Galax. This expansive park offers ten trails that meander through forests and are both family-friendly and dog-friendly. All of the trails are either easy or moderate difficulty, with the longest being 1.4 miles. Don't fancy a walk? The park has plenty of other activities for you to enjoy. You can fish, canoe, or simply have a nice family picnic. Dogs have to be leashed at all times, but that won't make this experience any less enjoyable. Bring water and doggie bags and have a furrific day here!



East Wilkesboro

The closest off-leash park to Galax is about 50 miles south, or around an hour-and-a-half drive away. Hidden Oaks Dog Park is a 5-acre park that's the perfect place to let your dog off-leash in an enclosed space and let him enjoy running and socializing with other pups. Like most dog parks, this one has two separate areas for large and small breeds. The ground is mostly grass, and there are some trees that provide shade for the hot days. Pet parents can rest and relax at the shaded picnic tables or on the benches in the dog park. Water is provided, but waste bags are not.



East West Jefferson

50 miles away from Galax, you'll find the Mount Jefferson State Natural Area located in the eastern area of West Jefferson. This is another great place for you and your pooch to embark on an adventure! Share a picnic near the summit with your doggo, and don't forget to snap some pics. There are a couple of hiking trails that you can hit up, but your dog has to remain on-leash. The most famous trails are The Lost Province Trail and The Rhododendron Trail. The first one is 3/4 of a mile long and is a medium difficulty trail, while the other one is a mile long but is fairly difficult to finish.


Pilot Mountain Park

Two more trails are available for you and your pup to explore around 42 miles away from Galax, both of which have starting points at Pilot Mountain State Park. Both of the trails are moderately easy and around 1.5 miles each. Each trail will take about 80 minutes to complete. If you want to loop around part of the park, choose the Jomeokee trail. If you want to enjoy the park from a distance, choose the Sassafras trail. Doggies are, of course, very welcome, as long as you clean up after them and keep them on a leash that is no longer than 6 feet. Bring water as well.
