Trough Creek State Park has more than 500 gorgeous acres of beautiful scenery. You and your pooch can explore for days on the trails. Some of the highlights are that part of the park goes through Terrace Mountain, and you can also check out a waterfall with a spectacular view.
Trough Creek State Park is dog-friendly, just be sure to follow all the rules. Dogs can go in day-use areas and any campsites, cabins, or cottages that are designated for pets. Be mindful of signs for places dogs cannot go, which generally include swimming spots, inside buildings, or anywhere else it is posted.
You should also make sure your furry four-legged friend is up-to-date on all shots and vaccinations. Your pup should never be left alone and should always be on a leash that is six feet or shorter. And of course, make sure your dog is not aggressive and responds to your command.
The hiking is said to be more difficult terrain, and it is recommended you wear hiking boots. It can also get slippery after rain. If you're up for it, some trails to consider hiking with Rover are the Balanced Rock Trail, which will take you to a rock that is balancing on another rock.
Copperas Rock is another magnificent view, with rocks scaling high and a small pond at the bottom. The stones are unique because, in addition to the typical earth-tone colors, they are also orange and yellow. You could also check out an overlook on the Ledges Trail.
Even on your way to Rainbow Falls you could walk over a suspension bridge. No matter where you are in the park, if you have your four-legged friend with you, make sure you carry some plastic bags to pick up after him and always take extra water so that your pup doesn't dehydrate.
