Popular private dog hiking trails near Conklin, New York

60 acres of upstate New York forest just for you!

Greetings! Our land is a mix of flat grass (think lawn), some long/short pasture, and the majority being heavy wooded forest area. You will enjoy some rustic logging trails up there (but please don’t expect a perfect state park-type path). The terrain can be steep to climb to the top depending on your skill level. Once you are at the “top” of the hill, there is “flat” land that you can hike (I’ve even jogged up there -slowly!). For those of you that like a challenge, besides our two pathways up the hill, we offer a very steep side of the hill to climb. One of the photos shows water – that is the case if there is a heavy rain (likely September/October) but please know we don’t always have a running stream. We do offer a hose and bucket to rinse your dog’s feet at the end of the stay. The photos with the leaves are from last year – this is what the property will [hopefully] look like in September/October. November starts getting cold. December will bring snow with some plowed areas. For accessibility: if you use a wheelchair, you can drive your car onto the land and use the flat part of the land if you can access grassy lawn. If there is interest, I can offer to take your dog up the hill to run around for a nominal fee. We are new to this so please ask questions. Consider this spot “forever wild” woods. It is incredibly calm and peaceful up on the hill. You can quietly listen to the woods or bring a radio and sing to your dog loudly. If you are not a climber, even playing fetch behind the barn is nice. Note: inside the barn is off limits. This is a working property and there are tools, tractors, and such that are not good for any animals. Please Remember: there are no fences and we have a state highway in front of our property. All the area that you would use would be set back an appropriate distance, but I want to be clear for everyone sake that there are no fences. If your dog does not come back when called, perhaps this spot isn’t the best for any off-leash activity. Wild Animals: There are deer in the woods (and some dogs love to chase deer!) so please keep that in mind as well. We have also seen rabbits and an occasional skunk, raccoon, fox, groundhogs, and once even a porcupine. We hear coyote sometimes but I have not seen any on our land. Upstate New York has been known to house bobcats, mountain lions, and bears among others, but I have yet to see them on our land as well. We do see bald eagles on occasion.

Doggone Gorges

Currently closed as we renovate! Explore Doggone Gorges 5.48 acres of pure bliss! Enchanted woods complete with Ithaca’s six-mile creek access for cooling off. Lay a blanket down, have a picnic, play fetch, splash around in the creek, or just take a stroll on our beautiful trails. Whether your dog is a sniffer, a fetcher, or a swimmer this is the perfect spot! This is the ideal place to practice recall with your dog while you explore nature in the most magnificent way. I have a cupboard of goodies to use as you wish, please help yourself before you hit the trails. If you do borrow something please make sure to sanitize and replace it before leaving. I provide biodegradable/disposable bags available to assist in cleaning up after your dog. Please help keep the spot beautiful by picking up after yourself and your pup. In the summer, I try to have a tent set up alongside the creek (weather permitting/keep rock in place so the tent stays grounded) so your dog can sit and relax in the shade if they wish while you enjoy your time taking in the scenery, or while relaxing in the hammock. We also have chairs for our human guests down by the creek. Please be mindful to stay within the boundaries of the property lines shown on the map (we strongly suggest downloading a free trial of OnX Hunt before your visit to help keep you within the boundaries). There are limited trail markers along the paths. My bordering neighbors are all very friendly and conscious of the use of my property being used as a sniff spot. The property lines cannot be crossed by guests and their dogs, as permission to access their property is not permissible. Please use extra caution during hunting season from October-December (preferably you and your dog should wear bright colors) in the event that there are hunters adjacent to the property. NO HUNTING is allowed on the property at any time. Cell phone service isn’t great but there are a few places to connect. There is a Bluetooth speaker to connect to if desired. Please select Alpine Corporation. There is no bathroom on site, so please make sure to use the potty before your arrival. Trash cans and Recycle bins are on the premise. Please throw away any garbage on your way out (including poo bags). Litterbugs will not be welcomed back. If you see a time blocked that you would like to visit, please contact me. I block time for myself and family events however my schedule may be flexible. If your dog is reactive please do not book as this is not a good fit. This area is not contained, potentially leaving your dog neither leashed nor under voice/remote control, and freely able to escape poses an unacceptable risk to my neighbors, their children, and their pets and I will not take this risk. I prefer to meet guests on the first visit to show you the property lines and answer any questions you may have.

FAQ about our Conklin dog hiking trails

Are dog hiking trails safe?
While public dog parks have a number of safety issues, such as aggressive dogs, inattentive owners, disease transmission and general cleanliness, Sniffspot dog parks are much safer than a city or county park. With a Sniffspot off-leash area all bookings are private for just you and dogs you bring with you and we require all dogs to be vaccinated (or have equivalent titers). All Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars. Our hiking trails tend to be outside the city, which lends to more privacy, but it is also important to follow typical hiking safety precautions, such as potentially having trail maps.
How can I find dog hiking trails in Conklin?
There are 11 dog hiking trails in the Conklin area. The most popular dog hiking trail is Nancy's Round Top Retreat In Richford. You can browse all of our dog hiking trails here.
How do I know if a dog hiking trail works for my dog?
Sniffspot provides the tools to find the ideal spot. Start by applying basic filters, such as fencing 6 feet tall and distractions, to find a dog park with trails that works for your dog. You can also filter by size if you are looking for a certain acre park, an expansive off-leash dog park. If your dog doesn't have good recall, you can visit one of our fully fenced dog hiking trails. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, you can visit one of our dog hiking trails where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby. Since you are looking for trails, make sure to check photos to see if it the spot has flat trails or gnarly trails. You can also browse by specific amenities, if you are looking for a view or a beach, for instance, or other activities or fun features. You can check whether the spot has off or on street parking, the regular park hours, whether it has paved trails or a modern restroom.
What are the requirements to bring my dog to a Sniffspot dog hiking trail?
In order to hike the trails, we require that all dogs have basic vaccinations or equivalent titers. We do not permit dogs with a bite history. We require that guests sign our waiver and agree to follow our safety rules.
Will there be other dogs at the Sniffspot hiking trail at the same time as me?
Sniffspot only allows one booking at a time and any host dogs are required to be kept away from the spot during visits. We also enforce 30 min time buffers between bookings.
How much do Sniffspot hiking trails cost?
Dog hiking trails in the Conklin area range from $6.0 and $20.0. The least expensive dog hiking trail is Michelle's 70 Acre Unfenced Private Dog Park In Dryden.
