Description

Lasso up your four legged partner and head on over to the Rush Ranch Open Space for a puptacular afternoon of hike. This is not just a pretty place to walk. It’s actually a fully operational cattle ranch, so let your doggo know they won’t be the only four legged creature in these parts.

Unfurtunately, dogs are only allowed on one trail at Rush Ranch. While the Marsh and South Pasture Trails are off limits to canine visitors, they are able to enjoy the Suisun Hill Trail. Leashed pups are also allowed around the Visitors Center, which is good since this is where the restrooms and drinking water are located. Fun fact- the Visitors Center is actually in a Sears Roebuck & Co. kit house that was purchased and assembled in 1932.

To access the Suisun Hill Trail with your pup, cross Grizzly Island Road just outside the entrance to Rush Ranch. Follow the short connector trail to begin the actual loop. As you may have guessed, the well-marked trail wraps around Suisun Hill and can be taken in either direction; let your four legged explorer make the call. Once you get to the top of the hill, gaze out over the sweeping views of Suisun Marsh, Potrero Hills, and the Vaca Mountains. Take a seat on one of the benches and enjoy the moment with your buddy. They’ll love looking over the vast expanse of land and sky.

Be sure to fill up your water bottles before starting the hike. Also, pack a couple clean up bags and pick up whatever your pup puts down. From November to February, the Ranch is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. But between March and October, it is open from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Located just two miles south of Highway 12 on Grizzly Island Road, your dog will love this trail so much you may get a big sloppy kiss on the cheek!
