Tomahawk, Wisconsin is every outdoor-lovers dream! Visitors often come to explore its exciting nature areas, from thick, forested trails through the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, to the boating adventures of Lake Mohawksin. Who else loves the outdoors? Man's best friend, of course, and fur-tunately for residents, there is a lot of dog-friendly activities to do too!
The city even has a designated dog park, known as the Tomahawk Dog Park. The park has two separate areas, one for small dogs that takes up half an acre, and 3 acres for large dogs. Both areas feature double-gated entrances, water and free toys. Owners can also find shaded seating for them, clean-up stations, and trash bins.
Bradley Park is the largest park in Tomahawk and is also wholly dog-friendly. The park sits right along the lake, with paved trails, wooded areas, and open fields. Dogs are welcome into the park on a leash and can also enter the picnic area, grilling stations, and boat landing. There are also trash bins and water fountains throughout the park for your convenience.
The fun doesn't stop there though, as the city also has multiple other parks, including Memorial Park and Washing Park. Before you know it, the year will run out before you get through all the different places you and Fido can go in Tomahawk! If anything goes awry on your adventures, there is one animal hospital right in town to help.
Central Tomahawk boasts all of the downtown life of the city, with busy streets in an urban setting. Even this small downtown area has dog-friendly parks. Pride Park offers some open areas, baseball fields, a skate park and a paved trail. Although little, Fido can still get a decent walk through the park and enjoy amenities like trash bins, benches, and water fountains. For more rural option, the Hiawatha Trail is a state trail that starts in Tomahawk. The path extends 15 miles north and passes over a pedestrian trestle over the Wisconsin River. Within the town, the trail only makes up about 3 miles and provides an excellent activity to get Fido his exercise.
Southern Tomahawk is as you can expect, on the southern end of the city. The neighborhood is a lot more open, with more trees and grassy plains, and provides you and Fido more options to get out. The Water Park is one of these options, which includes a wooded area with a paved path to the Spring Pond, for walking and fishing. Fido is welcome to fish with you at the pond, or walk on the trail while on a leash. The Kahle Park Nevada is also in the neighborhood, and provides a vast open area with ballfields and free space for Fido to run around while on a leash. Owners will have to bring water and clean-up bags to both parks.
The Harrison neighborhood is at the northeast point of the town and is made up of woods. Some of these forests are part of the Lily Lake State Natural Area, a 42-acre area with a lake, open bogs and different types of trees. Maintained nature trails are kept up throughout the nature area, and welcome leashed dogs to enjoy. Dogs must stay on a leash no more than 6 feet while in the area. The Northforest Campground is also in the neighborhood, and offers dog-friendly campsites for camping and access to the forest trails. The campsite has trash bins, and dogs must remain on leash while in the camp.
Northwestern Tomahawk is another option for those who want to get in touch with nature. The neighborhood is mostly taken up by the Lower Tomahawk River Pines State Natural Area. The large area is an undeveloped natural area with scenic views of the woods and the Tomahawk River. Dogs are welcome on a leash shorter than 8 feet, but be mindful to stay out of hunting and fishing areas. The Bearskin State Park Trail is a 26.5-mile trail that starts in this area and extends north. Dogs are welcome on the trail, but must also remain on a leash. Owners need to bring water and clean-up bags for both activities.
The small town of Merrill is 18 miles south of Tomahawk, and although a distance away, it offers a designated dog park and lots of outdoor options for Fido. The Merrill Dog Park is relatively new, and features over 2.5 acres of fenced-in area, with separate sections for small and large dogs, both with double-gated entrances. Both sections also have water and clean-up stations. On the outskirts of town is the Krueger Pines State Natural Area, a large open area that's dog-friendly to leashed dogs and provides natural scenic views and a close-to-nature walking experience. Humans will have to bring water and clean-up bags.
