Description

There’s no better way to spend the day than exploring a new place with your furry BFF. Pack up your pooch and head over to Piscataway Park for a woofderful day of fun. This beautiful parcel of land is situated right on the banks of the mighty Potomac River right across from historical Mount Vernon.

Your doggo will be happy to know that Piscataway Park has six pawsome trails that weave around the pawperty. Since they are all under a mile long, it’s a good idea to combine a couple so your pooch can get in a decent amount of exercise. The Pumpkin Ash Trail easily connects with the Blackberry Trail. Together these trails create a one mile loop that passes through a lush forest and marshlands. A boardwalk helps hikers make it across the terrain without getting their feet or paws wet. Here you will get a furrific view of Mount Vernon.

Another puptacular route to take is the Riverview Trail and Persimmon Trail Loop. Your pooch will love traipsing through the thick vegetation. Part of the trail runs near the National Colonial Farm, so your doggo may get a glimpse of some farm animals. This lollipop loop also circle Conservation Pond. Do your part to keep this lovely park clean and smelling fresh. Always have a clean up bags handy and ready to go. Also, carry plenty of water for both you and your four legged hiking partner.

All of the trails in the park are simply beautiful. Since there is so much wildlife living in these parts, your chances of seeing an animal are pretty good. Bald eagles, beavers, deer, fox, and turtles all call this place home, as do ticks. Make sure you check your pooch when you get back to your house.

Note that visitors services are in the National Colonial Farm, and are open 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday from March 1 until Thanksgiving. The visitor center is then closed Thanksgiving Day until February.

A trip to this park will make your pooch barking happy!
