Description

If your doggo likes to be right in the thick of things, then clip on their leash and go for a walk or run around Charlotte’s infamous Booty Loop. Nobody quite knows how this unofficial trail got its unique name, but if you ask a local, they’ll pawbably say it has to do with the athletic booties of those that frequent the trail.

This pupular three mile loop cruises through the idyllic Myers Park neighborhood. Here the sidewalks are lined with tall oak trees and multi-million dollar houses with well kept lawns and gardens. If your pup is a fan of architecture, this loop gives them a chance to see Tudor and Colonial revival style homes, Gothic churches, and charming bungalows. They can add a bit of culture to their workout!

Since it is not an official trail, there is no official parking, so you can either find a spot in a nearby business, or park your car at Freedom Park where you will also find restrooms and drinking fountains. From Freedom Park, follow East Boulevard to Hopedale Avenue. The loop runs east on this street until turns right onto Queens Road then right again onto Queens Road W where it connects with Hopedale Avenue. If your pup is still bursting with energy, take the loop again or follow Freedom Park’s two mile trail to tucker them out.

The Queen City’s Booty Loop is for all athletic abilities. Elite runners use it for conditioning, but you will also see families with strollers out for a walk. Since it’s so pupular, it’s impawtant that your pup has pawsome leash manners. Help them yield as necessary. Also, keep this path free of doggy debris. Bring some clean up bags and pick up whatever your pooch puts down. Make sure you have plenty of water on hand, especially on the warmer days.

Regular laps around this trail will make your pup’s booty doggone fit!
