Is your pup begging for an adventure in the great outdoors? Then it’s time for trip to Wetzel State Recreation Area. This 900 acre parcel of land is undeveloped and just waiting to be explored. The serene environment will give your pup a chance to reconnect with nature. And since this place is a pupular spot for dog walkers, your pal will probably meet a new furry friend.
Put on your boots and get ready to hit the trails with
your canine companion. There are nearly five miles of trails that wander
throughout this pawsome park. The Wetzel Nature Trail is the longest trail and
is a great option if your pal is bursting with energy. Shorter loops are also
available that weave in and around the wetlands, giving you and your doggo
plenty of chances to see the resident waterfowl. If you do come across some birds,
make sure your pup minds their manners and doesn’t chase or bark at them.
Since there are several ponds scattered around the park, you can also try your luck at fishing. In the winter, the trails are used for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. Be aware that hunting is allowed in season. To keep your pup safe, you may want to avoid the area when hunting season rolls around.
When you're visiting the Wetzel State Recreation Area,
make sure your furry friend is on a leash no longer than six feet. No matter
where you wander in the park, always carry a plastic bag and pick up whatever
your pup puts down. Also, be sure to bring enough water so the two of you can
stay hydrated. One more tip- when you get home, check your pal for ticks. These
nasty nuisances are abundant in the park.
No bones about it, this park will make your dog’s tail
