45Four stars is what I suspect my pup would give this place, as he loved leaping through the tall grasses and exploring. I would probably give it two or three for a couple of reasons. First, when I followed the directions and arrived at what I thought was the site, I wasn't at all confident that I was in the right place. The "road" just sort of ended in front of what I guessed was the tractor shed, but there was not parking as I understand parking. I didn't feel comfortable going any further so I parked. Second, the field was large and lovely, and a sort of space of less high grass got me to the edge of the field, but because of the very tall grass, I didn't feel comfortable hiking in the field or to the woods so never got to fully explore the site. It's likely a great site for more adventurous souls but I suspect we won't return.
55Awesome plot of land for pups to run free. A few different sections to sniff around for long periods of time. You can hear barking and see the dogs at the house. Biggest thing is the ground does get soft. I came early in the morning when it was frozen and got stuck when it thawed (that's on me and my sedan though.)
55We had sooo much fun! Lots of different areas to sniff and explore. To our dogs the tall grass was an absolute bonus. The path to park was definitely hard to find but now we know for next time :) Thank you!
55The mowed paths help a lot, and the dogs ALWAYS have fun getting lost in the trees.
45We had a great time playing with our dog in the field and exploring the woods. There were a few short trails so we mostly explored the woods close to the field. We also enjoyed letting our dog run in the field. Just note as other reviews said, the grass is very high ~3 to 4 ft so it’s not as open as some of the pictures show it. Definitely for bigger dogs. And read previous reviews about finding the path through the woods to get to the shed.
45A nice spot for a different season, but as others said the fields aren't mowed, I was hoping for some paths through the grass at least, and I couldn't stop worrying about ticks. For me, the price was a bit steep to come back again before tick season ends, but I'll be back in the late fall or winter.
45It is really hard to find. When you get there, go past the driveway and drive very slowly. The entrance a tiny path on your right that’s marked with a slight break in the trees. The main issue we had was the fact that the field is super overgrown. I’m 5’2 and the grass was past my armpits in a lot of spots. Unless you have a really big dog, you will not be able to see them and they probably won’t be able to do a lot of running.
55We have visited the horse farm with our dogs and our friends dogs (up 4-5). The site has 4 fields to explore with trails. The main field is a large open space with a hill which is a great way to exercise out the "demons" with our rowdy bunch :) Enough removed from owned house, and other distractions etc. Not fenced so you need dogs that stay close or have good recall. Grassed area so not much issues with mud (which other sniff spots have been issue). About 30 minutes from DC. The turn into the horse pastures is more of a trail path and a little hard to find on first visit. It can accommodate a SUV, keep in mind not paved and low clearance for some vehicles. Highly recommend this little found gem.
55This is becoming our go-to place to wear out the dogs! They like to sniff and explore, then we throw balls/wubbas up and down the hill until they are tired. We bring plenty of water to rehydrate. They love it!
55My dog had a great time running through the very large field and roaming the woods. We followed a few short trails into the woods, and he wandered a bit through the woods even when I didn’t see a clear trail. He enjoyed lots of good sniffing! I didn’t have any trouble finding the entrance after reading the other reviews. I also didn’t have any trouble navigating the road in a sedan.

The 80 acre wood

We have a beautiful 80 acre farm with loads of space for furry friends and their owners to enjoy the outdoors! ****EFFECTIVE APRIL 1**** Our back large field that leads to our wood walking trails- please remain to the right side following tire mark trail. It is hay growing season and need to commit to that trail. This will be in place until our hay cut at the end of the summer, early fall. *please fill in any holes your dog may dig. This has been an increasing issue on our property. If your dog is a digger please visit our over grown arena which is at the very top of our driveway and has a bridge . They can dig to their hearts content in that location! This is a working farm! We have animals that need tending too, so you may hear us from time to time on equipment/ tending to our animals! We have options of fenced in spaces for our friends that prefer to be closed in, a space for climbing and digging , and open spaces to run or trails to walk! Currently back trails are not officially marked but path is clear with tire tracks. Please be mindful of trees or branches from above and below. Possible risk of tripping and falling in the paths. *****please take note for friends looking to use fenced in area-we have slats that need replacing****** This is on our spring repair list this year, so please use with caution. We also do sell our farm fresh, free range eggs, as an addition to our services, which you will find in the extras. You can add in with your reservation! We can’t wait for you all to visit! And please do not hesitate to contact with any questions or if any assistance is needed!
