Head to Georgetown, Texas, for a quality hike through the area, perfect for all pup-abilities! The San Gabriel River Trail is a flat trail that offers a pup-friendly environment, perfect for those looking for an easy, yet lengthy, hike.
This lighted trail traverses besides the San Gabriel River and offers scenic views along its entire 8.8 miles. It allows walkers and bicyclists a relatively-level terrain made of asphalt and crushed gravel, which is easy on the feet and paws! You will even find moms with strollers enjoying the day. Take your pup for a walk either on the paved surface or alongside on the grass for an easy-paced stroll.
Keep your pup on a leash here, and they are sure to enjoy its mostly shaded areas and rest stops throughout. Benches have been placed along the way for a reprieve and to pamper your tired feet. Other amenities include clearly-placed markers, so you know how far you have travelled and how far you have yet to walk. Art pieces have been carefully positioned at each one-mile milestone to reward your efforts and to keep you entertained. Don’t forget to stop by the designated bird-watching location to catch some rare views of the exotic feathered friends which frequent the area. And lastly, your pup will enjoy watching out for the pawprints which designate every 1/10th of a mile they have travelled. Owners of elderly or out-of-pawtastic-shape pups can use this as a guide for an exercise program for Fido.
The weather in Texas can be very hot during most months of the year, so please plan accordingly and bring plenty of water to share. Also, remember to clean up after them to keep this trail pup-tastic! The San Gabriel River Trail is your ticket to hiking fun with your fur-ever friend.
