Description
Dog-friendly activities are always in demand when you travel with your dog. Historic Salisbury is a trail that lets you get to know the history of Salisbury with your dog by your side. This hike is versatile. It's a self-guided tour, so you can set your own pace! You can power walk it if you want to be done hiking in time for other activities, or you can take your time with it. There's plenty to see either way. 


Pick up your trail guide outside the visitor's center at 215 Depot Street and get ready to launch your adventure. Historic Salisbury is a four-mile hike that will lead you through several of the city's historic districts. Salisbury has grown a lot through the years, and each expansion left its characteristic architecture behind! The main trail mostly stays in the neighborhood of Downtown Salisbury. Want to see a little more of the city? Consult your map at every turn. The main trail doesn't come close to covering everything that Salisbury has to offer. By keeping an eye on your map, you can determine when it's worth it to take a detour and see another landmark, artwork, or historic building! 

Historic Salisbury definitely qualifies as an urban hike! You don't have to worry as much about bringing supplies with you, or making sure you remembered every little thing you'll need. Instead, make sure you're keeping your eyes peeled for traffic signs! You're often going to be crossing a bustling intersection, so keep a tight grip on that leash! You'll be walking on concrete and asphalt all day, as well. Thicker soled shoes will help cushion your feet for walking. Dogs may enjoy booties if the pavement gets too hot! 

Historic Salisbury is a dog-friendly activity that will definitely have you and your dog sleeping well tonight!
