49 licks Dog Park In Central Square

Located 5 minutes from route 81 and the Walmart in Central Square, NY SPRING TRAILS! As the snow melts, you'll find some areas of the trail muddy and slippery. Typically there are some major puddles (though after heavy rains it could be more possible), but mud boots are recommended! Springtime might not be the best if you have knee or back issues- I'd hate for anyone to slip and injure themselves. I highly recommend bringing towels to wipe your dogs feet off after your walk before heading back home. They're going to have LOTS of fun and if they're like my dogs, they'll have muddy paws! 🌳🌲Welcome to 49 Licks dog park🌲🌳 We feel so blessed to call this property our home, and would love for others to experience the beautiful nature we get to enjoy each day. 49 licks includes over 3 1/2 miles of trails, fallen trees to sniff, hills to climb, and ravines to explore. Our 110 acre property is nestled in the woods, 600 fee off of the road with parking near our metal barn at the top of our driveway. We have over a 3 1/2 miles of beautiful trails through hills and trees, with a short and long trail option. The long trail loop is about a 2 miles long and takes 40-60 minutes to walk. The shorter trails approximately 7 of them are closer to 1/3-1/4 mile each We hope your dog(s) enjoy all the sights, sounds and smells throughout the woods- we have wild turkey, deer, many small wild animals to see, and and have him/her/them go home tired, satisfied and happy. This is a completely unfenced property. We ask that all dogs are leashed or have a training collar for recall, as wildlife are abundant on our property. We do have 2 dogs who are contained in a kennel that does not have access to the trails. They are us usually in the house during appointments, at start and end times minimally. As long as your dog does not come into their area, there will be no other dog interactions on our property. 110 acres includes a few acres of open area and the rest Is wooded with approximately 9 trails for a total of 3 1/2 miles of well marked trails. Map available. Backs up to a huge pond area. Ok

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.
