The William Field Memorial Hart Montague Trail State Park is a well-loved trail that is 22 miles of paved trail for hiking, biking, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. Along the path, you can stop at a picnic area for a rest and to enjoy some lunch. The trail allows you to put your tail wagging friend on a leash and head out for a great hike.
The paved trail is regarded as easy and has six different trailhead and waypoints you can start or stop your journey at. If you want to be sure you know where you're going or tend to worry about becoming lost, you can choose to start at the Montague Trailhead and visit the small information center.
This trailhead has a nice picnic area with a grill and a pond and also has a map and provides tourist information. Toilets are located at some of the trailheads, and you can check your map for restroom locations. Whenever your dog needs to go, remember you must pick it up immediately after so your dog doesn't leave anything for other hikers to step in.
There are also some picnic areas along the trail at different mile markers. If you get tired along your way and don't see a picnic area, don't fret because there are benches, too. You might feel invigorated by the nature surrounding you. You and your dog can look (and sniff out) at a variety of trees, including oak and maple trees.
Some visitors report that parts of the trail are more serene than others; you might hear or see more foot traffic or nearby car traffic at certain sections of the trail. Wherever you are along the trail, make sure your furry friend is always on a leash. Also, keep your dog up to date on vaccinations and make sure he listens to your command.
