Go boldly into the wild at the Wilderness Road State Park, which is a park with some history. Daniel Boone explored this land and opened it up to be the Western frontier of North America. Unlike Daniel Boone’s time, the park now has a wide range of amenities from your typical trails and picnicking areas to ADA-certified playgrounds.
Try exploring some trails with Rover and see historical spaces. The hiking trail with the easiest terrain is perhaps the longest, at almost 8.5 miles. There are three other trails marked at moderate difficulty but are approximately one mile or less. If you want to see Martin's Station Fort or the White Rocks, which are often crowd-pleasers, use the Pioneer Trail, which is just less than one mile.
Your pup is welcome on trails, but be sure your dog is always on a six-foot leash (or shorter) and never leave your pooch unattended. You must always pick up after your pooch, so be sure to pack plenty of plastic bags in your pack. The park is also well-known for having events and an active non-profit called "Friends of Wilderness State Park" dedicated to growing the park and creating events for the community.
This non-profit provides equipment and labor for projects but also searches for funding. They host events throughout the year, such as special hikes, live theater, or festivals. While the park allows dogs in many places, be sure to confirm that your pooch is allowed at all of the events.
Wilderness Road State Park maintains rustic camping conditions, so your experience might be similar to Daniel Boone's if you stay overnight. The primitive camping experience requires you to bring your own water, for both drinking and bathing. There are portable toilets available, but no showers.
If you want Rover to come camp out with you and your friends, you'll have to pay a $10 charge per pup per night. Whenever you are packing, be sure to consider his water and toileting needs, too, as you'll need plenty water for him and plenty of doggie-poop bags to pick up after him.
