About 14 miles south of Charlotte in Fort Mill, SC, sits the Lake Haigler Nature Walk at Anne Springs Close Greenway, pupular with leashed canines and their humans. Skirting the lake, the trail's natural surface and lush foliage are just what the vet ordered! Tulip Poplar trees and Christmas Ferns line the path, and hickories near the trail's end feed the abundant squirrels. Fido will have a ball sniffing out the small critters! An extra treat could be a dip in the lake - pawsome!
A visit to the Pharr Yarns Preserve yields a grrreat hike on a 4.4-mile round trip trail that follows along the South Fork of the Catawba River. For pups and humans yearning for an easy, peaceful and picturesque hike in the woods, this is pawrfect! Set in McAdenville, a mere 12 miles from downtown Charlotte, the constant murmuring of the river, bird sounds from above and greenery all around will call you and your fur-baby back again and again!
