Alma and David are free enjoy and extremely helpful with the whole process. My dogs had the time of their lives running they the trails off leashes. They were more than thrilled to find the cold water to splash in to cool down after all the running. I would highly recommend this sniff spot for adventures of your fur babies. I have a leash reactive German Shepherd so walks usually are stressful. Here she could be a dog without fear of ruining into others. We will be back again on a cooler day.
This was an amazing experience! My son and his pup had a blast, definitely worth the creek hike. It was a bit of a hike but we’ll worth it! We will be looking to make another trip out there with some cousin pups asap!
What a beautiful, peaceful spot! Our dogs and us LOVED hanging out by the stream on a hot day and we had so much fun. The host was extremely friendly and really great about communicating before and during our visit. When I didn’t have enough reception to load the stream directions, she met us to show us the way. We’ll be back!!!!
Lovely property when we finally found it. Thought I booked for 4pm but accidentally booked for 3 and was well over an hour late Alma was kind enough to rearrange another guest so the dogs could do a little exploring. They were so excited.
I just wish the website would have indicated not to follow your GPS and only follow the host’s directions. There no signage anywhere to indicate where to go or what to do. I’m sure it is my error though.
My dogs had a blast just being dogs without me worrying about other dogs or people being around. 2hrs was the perfect amount of time to book. The creek add-on is a must, bring a beverage to enjoy at the stream but food attracted some wasps. Alma sent very thorough directions to reach the farm itself and then the creek, we didn’t get lost at all. You’ll want to follow your gps up to the conservancy on your right and then Alma’s directions the rest of the way up. I’m only sad I’m not local and can’t come to this SniffSpot regularly! Thank you for sharing your property with dog owners (especially reactive dog owners) everywhere.
This was everything could have hoped for! Our dog, Brienne, is reactive to strangers, so it was nice to be able to rent out a big area for her to run around in without worrying about running into other people. The stream was lovely. Brienne jumped in immediately and stayed there nearly the whole time. Beautiful weather, too. We rented the 9am-11am slot at the end of a September heat wave. It was a nice 70 degrees.
We will definitively do this again!
We had a great time at the ranch! It was so quiet and nice to get away from all the noise. We checked out the creek, which was a nice spot to chill on a warm morning. A long line is a must if you're not confident that your dog won't try to run into the brush. We did let Wiggles off leash at the creek, because it was pretty easy to keep him in one place in that area. The trails are marked so well and easy to navigate, even though we got lost when we were leaving and ended up on a higher part of the driveway than where we parked (woops!). Pro tip: if your dog tries to go one way on the way back and doesn't want to turn, chances are they know the way and you don't! Ha. We ended up at a dead end at one point on the way back and when we got back to the fork we realized that Wiggles was trying to tell us the way to go. It was a great trip, although toasty. Highly recommend!!
My third time here, Alma is so kind and helpful (somehow I got lost getting there this time), and it was a safe and enjoyable time for my dogs. Love this spot and will definitely come back! Thank you, alma!!
We didn't visit because we didn't have a phone signal and the GPS directions were not good. The host said they didn't have our phone number to text us a map. It's too far for us to go again even though they offered us a free visit.
Well everything went smooth until we hit the 15 FRWY I did not alot for time in this crazy CA traffic so had to turn around (we were coming from Garden Grove) Alma and David were so nice about it you have to give them 5 Stars.....Next time we will give it some more time.....
This is the best sniffspot in the greater San Diego area! Absolutely worth the money. We brought our two dogs here and we all loved it. We did the creek hike and our pups loved jumping in the water and climbing on the rocks. We will definitely be back!
Looooved this sniff spot! The extra creek hike is SO worth it. Its a quick 10 min hike to the creek and it quite hilly so make sure you have plenty of water (for you and pup) but once you get down there it is amazing! Will def be coming back
What a treat to be able to hike off-leash with our reactive pup in a beautiful setting and without a worry! We booked 2 hours + stream hike (as many recommended) and it was perfect. Our pup (and us) got to cool off and splash around before returning back. The hosts do a wonderful job of sending you information to ensure you stay on track to find their property and also for your hike. We made the drive from Los Angeles and it was very much worth it :)
Excellent location - felt lucky to be there! Lots of shade which was great because the stream hike is definitely a hike. Everything was exactly as described and the directions provided by the host were perfect
The location was beautiful, the hosts were helpful and provided easy to follow directions. My dog had a blast and enjoyed the stream. Would definitely return to enjoy a few hours!
We had a great time today and cant wait to go back. The stream hike was worth the extra money. The host sent information that was invaluable and we really appreciated (needed) it.
An absolute win for our dogs today. Recommend to definitely book 2 hours. Once you get down to the stream you’ll want to hang out and enjoy it.
Wow what a great day! Excellent communication and beautifully kept trail. We will definitely be back. Such a special memory for us to share with our dog. The creek trail is a must.
Awesome sniffari!! Highly recommend
I would recommend this to everyone! Such a beautiful property and the loveliest host ever. I had an amazing time with my dogs. ❤️
Greetings from Long Beach and yes, this spot is worth the trek!
What an incredible gift this place is for us reactive pup guardians.
As others have stated, yes to the Creek add on. Yes, there are steep parts and you need trail boots or shoes.
In August, I was glad to be leaving at 11:30 instead of arriving because it was quite hot on the path with little shade but the creek is a delightfully cool and shady spot.
For those mentioning the fee, we all get to determine what is valuable or “worth the price” for ourselves.
I will tell you, though, that part of your investment is exceptional, exemplary customer service. The hosts work to insure you know where you are going with clear directions and photo markers they send ahead of time so you have them even without cell service.
They insure you arrive and leave and as someone who went by herself with a reactive dog, that’s helpful. I was alone but not on my own.
The hosts care for their property and it shows.
Well worth the drive, time, and fees.
Do yourself a favor. Treat yourself to two hours. You’ll be glad for the respite time with your pup.
You get to be present and not looking for triggers while sitting along alongside a creek.
There’s a lot we can’t do with our pups. But this, this-we get to do and we know not to take it for granted.
Thanks, Choice Avocados!
This is a great doggy adventure! I invited a friend and her dog and we split the cost. We loved it. We went at 7am to beat the sun and it ended up being misty lol but we were happy about it!
After seeing all the other comments, we added the stream hiking and yeah that was worth it. Our doodles loved the water and chasing each other up and down.
I would recommend shoes with grip for the creek as parts of the way down are loose dirt and at an incline. Instructions were easy to follow! We booked 2.5 hours but if you want to chill and settle with your dog after play I might recommend 3. I could also see 4 hours if you want to have a picnic and/or explore another way after the creek.
We then went to 1909 in Temecula for doggy brunch — it was a great day!
Excellent hiking and wonderful hosts! Definitely add the creek, it’s very cute and the water was nice and crisp. Have to come back
Our pack had an absolute blast here! They loved the stream and running up all the hills through the forest. Alma was very nice and super helpful! We really appreciated her helping us move all our stuff and pups to the stream! Beautiful sniffspot and tons of fun.
This spot was the perfect location! Spent 1.5 hour there and didn’t see another soul, very private and remote - made it comfortable for us to off leash our pup. We ended up doing the Stream Trail last minute and Alma was a gracious host in communicating information and switches. For those with limited mobility, the Stream Trail is definitely a hike with some inclines and declines to navigate so bring a walking stick!
This was my first Sniffspot and my dogs and I loved it. I booked two hours with the stream hike from 9:30-11:30am in August. It took us about 15-20 minutes to get to the stream and about 20-25 minutes to get back to the car. It was warm but it was much cooler by the stream. There were some steep points on the trail. I have a senior dog with a bad hind leg/hips but she made it up and down the trail just fine. I had my dogs leashed until we got to the stream. I strongly recommend wearing hiking or trail shoes for steep points on the trail and bringing sandals for the stream.
I really appreciate how clean the area is. One of my dogs has a bad habit of eating foreign objects from the ground so it was nice not having to worry about that. There are no trash cans so I disposed our doggy bags at a nearby gas station. Next time, I'll bring some heavy duty sealed bags to collect everything and dispose at a later time (and to help with the smell in the car lol).
I was worried about getting lost on the way there, but my Apple Maps was able to navigate me there even without service. The hosts also provided detailed directions to the trail and stream. They were easy to follow and super helpful.
Overall, my dogs and I really enjoyed this place and we'll definitely be back.
OVERALL: we had a great experience, and our dog loved the adventure! We'd go back during a cooler month, pick an early time before the sun gets too hot, and book no less than 2 hours + the stream hike. // The hosts were so helpful and great at communicating. We booked the area for 2-hours and added on the stream hiking. They provided easy-to-follow instructions with images on how to get to the creek. I am not sure where we would have explored if we did not add on the stream hiking. I was imagining 20 acres with areas of open land for my dog to run, but we experienced long trails with wide walking paths (still great, just not what I imagined). Our dog is very curious so we keep him on a long leash, and I'm glad we did because in addition to some steep cliff edges along the walking path (which he would have likely tried to walk down if he saw/heard something that caught his attention), there were a couple of squirrels and lizards along our walking path and even little frogs by the creek. There is some shade as you walk/hike to the creek, but there is also lots of direct sun. We booked a 2-hour visit from 11am-1pm in August and would go again but not when it's so hot and likely during a cooler month/earlier time. It took about 15-20 minutes to get down to the creek, and I fell twice on my butt when going down the steep hills, mostly because my dog was on a leash slightly pulling, but I still wanted to share so that others know there are some steep areas. Once we got to the creek it was so peaceful and relaxing. There was plenty of shaded seating options, a picnic bench, hammock, and my dog loved exploring in the creek. We packed a lunch, ate by the creek, and relaxed there until it was time to go. Returning took about 20-25 minutes, and I agree with other reviews that while it's a relatively short hike, it's very steep in some parts and combined with the heat and sun, made some parts strenuous. I'd recommend hiking boots or walking shoes with good traction; we are in our late 30s and wore our old running shoes. This was our first SniffSpot, we loved how big of an area we were able to rent to ourselves and are very thankful it's available - we all enjoyed it and will be back!
They were absolutely amazing! Very helpful with everything since we got lost a bit but their directions were very well written, I just can’t read 😂 The actual stream was super cold, to cool off after the incredibly scenic route up and down the path. Thank you so much for having us and we will definitely be back again!
We had a blast! Alma was very responsive when we accidentally walked passed the first turn and she was able to quickly help us get back on the right path just via phone. We don’t normally let our dog off the leash but felt comfortable doing so at the creek. We had a blast and would definitely recommend :)
This was a wonderful experience. The hosts were really informative and organised and the hime and stream were very peaceful and beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!
This property is beautiful! We chose the creek hike and there’s seating, a swing over the creek, Hammock, and picnic table. We have a reactive dog so being able to take them here where they can enjoy nature and the water without having to worry about other dogs is so invaluable. We will definitely be back!
The area was AMAZING!
My husband and I had a wonderful time with our two dogters! This was their first off leash adventure, and we felt safe and protected. The hike wasn’t too long and there was plenty of shade. Our girls loved every second of playing in the stream! Would highly recommend taking your dogs here especially if your dogs are still a little reactive to other dogs. Alma and David made the adventure awesome!
This spot was amazing! My senior pup loved it and had so much fun in the creek. Definitely get the additional creek hike it is worth it. Do want to note that the hike to the creek is quite steep in some places so make sure to bring good shoes. Also, if you have a dog that’s a flight risk bring a long line rather than letting them off leash- the spot is pretty secure, but I could see some dogs getting themselves into trouble if they weren’t used to being off lead. Definitely will be returning, my dog had the best day ever.
Another amazing experience!! We can't get enough of this place! It's just so beautiful, and there is so much to explore 😍
we had a great time.
my dogs were tired and content by the end of it. felt like time went by extremely fast, even though we got the two full hours.
i would recommend having your dogs on a long lead if they don’t have great recall. (like i did with my doggos)
the hike was a bit steeper than i anticipated. but definitely doable. wear shoes with great grip!
the stream was nice and a great way to cool down.
also, be sure to check in within arrival! alma sent her husband to look for us after not hearing back from us, assuming we got lost on the way! host is very kind 🙂
Our dogs had a blast hiking on the trails and playing in the stream! We did an evening trip on a very hot day, which was perfect. Everything about this spot was awesome. The only drawback was our dog did find a rattlesnake behind a rock down y the water. Luckily it was sleeping and we saw it before she disturbed it, so all was well. The hosts had told us they'd never had anyone see a snake before, so I guess we were just lucky- but glad we were keeping the dogs close. Always a risk anywhere in CA!
What a beautiful and quiet place to walk your dog! We had a long drive from East County San Diego to get there but it was worth it to walk in such a peaceful place. Our dog has very high prey drive so we kept him on leash but he had a blast and tuckered out before our hour was even up. What a special place and so grateful to have opportunities for reactive dogs walk and be dogs and yet to not worry about running into other dogs. We would absolutely return.
We had an absolute blast! The creek is straight out of a fairytale. The directions are super helpful - we did get lost at first but texts from the hosts got us right back on track. Our pup had the best day ever! 10/10. We will come again!
This was our first time trying out sniffspot and we decided to visit Choice Avocados for our doggy sniffari adventure. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. The hosts are very friendly and thorough with providing detailed directions to the location. The stream trail was our favorite our pup loved running through the stream. It was his first time being able to explore off leash without having to worry about him running into any dogs. Which is a big relief for any dog owners who have reactive dogs. Overall, it was a great adventure for us and our pup. We'd definitely come back again!
We had a great time today. The dogs had so much fun running free and going in the water. I would recommend this to everyone. It was so great to watch the dogs have the time of their life. I hope to be back soon
What a wonderful experience!! I could talk about this place all day and I still wouldn't be able to say all the wonderful things that I would like to say. Simply amazing. Safe, clean, gorgeous views, so much to explore... Alma is a wonderful host, so sweet and kind and patient. Great communication. We took the wrong turn and went in the opposite direction, (Alma's directions were clear, but we relied on Google maps and lost signal), and unfortunately would have missed our time slot by the time we made it there. She graciously offered to reschedule our time for the next day. That was so very kind of her! We loved every minute of being there. This is the kind of place you will want to bring your whole family to for a picnic, or just to explore. I strongly suggest booking more than an hour, simply because you will not want to leave! And definitely add the stream hike! It's a must do! Needless to say, we will be back. And soon 😊
We really enjoyed our day and our dog was WORN OUT. It was so awesome for our boy to be able to run free without me having to worry about encountering other dogs.
We did the avocado grove hike and it was a nice mix of sunny and shady, steep hills and gentle slopes. Alma gave excellent, detailed directions with photos to guide us with parking and where to meet the trail. Next time we will book the stream tour. We encountered an employee of the farm as we were leaving who highly recommended it.
It’s a beautiful property, Alma was very warm and welcoming and we will definitely be back.
We had a great time! It was a lovely hike down to a secluded stream that my pup loved to play in!
Great spot to let your dog run free without worrying about him running off! Love walking amongst the avocado trees! 🥑
Lovely trail along the avocado tree paths. Our dog loved it here. Service in the area is very spotty so be sure to check in for instructions before arrival because google maps won’t take you all the way.
Your land is simply magical. ✨
I’ve been to a few other sniff spots in San Diego, but nothing compares. I read the description and reviews, but still I was blown away by how beautiful the property is and the trails are endless. I knew as soon as we arrived an hour wouldn’t be enough and Alma accommodated to let us book more time. I’ve never been able to see Stanley run free. He chased lizards and ran up the hills through the leaves, climbed on rocks, waded in water, drank from the creek. Today is a day I will never forget. Thank you Alma and David for sharing your property with these beautiful creatures who are meant to run and play in a safe space.
Great communication! They responded immediately to all correspondence, answered my questions, and provided extra maps and guides to make it easy to navigate to and through the property. I’d been waiting for the right day to go. It was a long drive for me and I wasn’t sure about spending the time and money to travel, so I kept putting it off, but I wish I’d gone sooner!!!
Very nice little spot with creek and swing by the end of the trail. Had a little trouble finding the entrance but the host is very patient with me.
My reactive dog always has the best time here! And the hosts are always so communicative. 10/10
Was so grateful to have found this property for my highly reactive bulldogge! I don’t have many options where I can bring him and this was beyond a dream come true for us! The owners were gracious and kind, quick to respond and be of assistance. Mack loved it here and we didn’t need to worry about a thing! We had plant to room to run and shade to cool off in. The property was filled with views in every direction and it was a pleasure to have been able to come here! Definitely will be back- for sure a gem here.
Really enjoyed this, my dog is reactive and I live in an apartment so this is the first time she’s really gotten to be off leash. We did the stream hike and it was great—it was hot though and there are two very steep sections. I’m pretty in shape and they were hard, but short. The host was also very understanding when our hour and a half drive from central OC turned into a two hour drive and let us stay longer. We’ll definitely be back!
Our dogs had so much fun! The creek was such a treat, especially after a hike. Alma was very informative. We will be back!
We had a great time! We went done by the creek and really enjoyed set up with chairs and the swing while our pup got to explore. The host was also very kind and helpful with detailed directions
This is an amazing property! The host is very communicative & friendly. Such a fun adventure! My dog had the best time.
Midas and I returned as members and neither of us could get out of the car fast enough! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous slice of heaven (and for Sancho your wonderful Adventure Dog) with us. Every dog needs and deserves to just be a dog and you have created a safe place for them to do so. See you soon!
Drove an hour from San Diego to bring our dog-reactive dog here to get some fun, off-leash time. She absolutely loved it and had a blast playing in the water. Highly suggest adding the stream hike onto your time here! Definitely take caution going up & down the hills, it can be a lot if you’re not used to it (especially in the heat). All in all it was a great experience and we’ll definitely be back!
We loved watching our pup have the best day of his life! He loved splashing along the stream and sniffing every inch of the trails; The stream walk is a MUST. There is a swing, hammock, and chairs so you can relax and enjoy nature. The host is communicative, very kind, and even provided clear instructions to the stream so you aren’t lost and can just enjoy your time. We drove 1 hour from Downtown San Diego so our pup can experience the beautiful nature and practice being off-leash, we can’t wait to go back. Thank you!
We had a blast today! So nice letting our big boys run around without worrying about anything. Our car broke down before we got there and they were extremely communicative and helpful in making sure we still had a great trip. Highly recommend the stream hike, but it is a little steep and took my parents (in their 60s) about 25 min to get there and another 25 back. It’s such a beautiful oasis. Thank you guys!
Beautiful spot for the dog to run around and practice hiking off leash
Had a lot of fun letting our 2 year old GSD mix rescue run free here! She was exhausted after:)
My dog had a blast! She’s a little older so the hike kicked her butt (and mine). She had so much fun wading through the creek and sniffing through the bushes and I was relaxed knowing there weren’t other people/dogs around. 10/10 would highly recommend taking your dog(s)!
Had a great time with my dog! He loved the stream and being able to run around.
Kind hosts and huge, unique property! The stream is a must see. Our dog loved it!
Drop everything and go NOW! From start to finish, our experience at David and Alma’s beautiful farm was top notch. They are wonderful folks who communicate and help every step of the way. The hike and water (get the river walk!) was gorgeous and so fun. I recently adopted a shelter dog who is generally nervous about the busy environment and often worried about new dogs. I wanted him to experience the joy of running, leaping, and simply being a dog in nature. I asked if we might have a ranch hand dog join us and I’m so glad I did. Sancho came along with us and immediately befriended my Midas. They ran and leapt and wrestled in the water together like only best friends can do. Thank you David and Alma and Sancho for giving Midas what I am certain was the best day of his life. We will be back very soon!
So fun! Our second time visiting and it was great. We brought food for us and toys for the dogs. Great afternoon.
We got a little lost while driving there because even though it's relatively simple, I doubted myself 😂 but so nice helping us with directions and thorough with making sure we got there, that we were comfortable and safe. The trails are clean and nice. Easy to navigate with some hills to tire out our doggies. They were so excited and had insane zoomies because they were soooo happy. My dog never gets to be off leash because he's dog reactive so it was so healing to see him so free and happy. Will definitely be coming again!
The host was extremely helpful. She sent very detailed directions and images to help us find the location and answered our questions. The location was beautiful! The dogs and the kids had so much fun. We will be returning.
It was super fun my pups enjoyed it a lot , there were a lot of bees though and my dogs kept trying to eat them , besides that everything was great !
It was a nice area and I loved how secluded it was. Very friendly
We had a blast celebrating my dog's 3rd birthday at this Sniffspot! This time we invited some friends, another couple and their dog.
The dogs had so much fun playing in and around the stream. My dog hates water, but this is the first time I ever saw her voluntarily getting wet! She was walking through the stream from bank to bank, retrieving sticks, and just having the best time!
We had a much better experience this time. Alma answered the phone when we arrived, and helped us out when we got turned around trying to find the gate. She also told us we can put our used poop bags at the entrance when we leave so we didn't have to take them with us this time!
We love coming here! Our dog is reactive so this is the only place we feel comfortable letting him off leash.
This place is great!! We did the grove walk only and it was perfect for our needs. We really wanted to try a true off leash walk with our dog in a safe space. This was great. Once you drive through the gate you can close it behind you. Once that’s done, the entire space is fenced. We spent about an hour walking all over the hills through the trees. The trees kept it cool and nice.
We came from Fallbrook and the sign is hard to see from that direction. If you’ve hit w sandia creek terrace (and you’re coming from Fallbrook), you’ve gone too far.
We will definitely be coming back. This is a great spot!
Lovely place to take your dogs (reactive dogs too)! My dogs had a blast here and really enjoyed playing in the creek, would definitely recommend! The hosts were also very helpful and answered any questions we had.
It was so great! I wasn’t great with the directions and couldn’t find it at first but they were super understanding a let me stay a little extra. There’s a really fun hiking trail with partial shade. My dog was having so much fun he didn’t want to leave. I wasn’t wearing the right shoes it was a little slippery going downhill so I will wear my hiking boots next time. We will be booking again for sure.
This spot was amazing! We brought our 3 dogs ( a 1 y/o Great Dane, 13 y/o chihuahua, and 9 y/o pit mastiff) each of them absolutely loved it! We upgraded to the stream hike (100% recommend). The trail was clean, the creek had lots of areas to sit, a swing, a hammock, and also a picnic table. We also brought our 1 year old, who also had so much fun playing in the water and swinging on the hammock! The hike has a couple of steep spots but really nothing that’s TOO challenging. 10/10 recommend visiting here!
This was such a fun experience and I cannot wait to do it again. The property is gorgeous. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go to the creek but I am so glad I did. My dog had the absolute time of her life and so did I. The owner was so nice and helpful too. She directed us and let me know she would be available if I got lost or needed help which I really appreciated. This was definitely worth the ride from OC. ☺️
Loved this location. The hosts maps & directions were clear and easy to follow. Wish it was less expensive & we would be there all the time. The stream extra was definitely worth it! There were quite a few bees down by the stream if you’re allergic, but they didn’t bother us too much.
This place was so awesome and fun to take our dogs hiking! The owners were so friendly and accommodating!! Our pups absolutely loved the water stream but just be sure that you add that as an add on as it is not included! Will definitely be returning!
Great place! A little steep for our little kids on the hike. My pup Oso loved being able to roam off leash! Looking forward to go back
Such a beautiful amazing little oasis! Absolutely loved it, must do the hike to the creek it is worth it!!
Everyone had a blast. I enjoyed the swing and the little stream as well.
We had the most amazing visit, our dog had so much fun, and his playmate from the farm was a sweet as she could. I love this property, the creek is a must see, my dog only wants to stay there all the time. Directions are clear and easy to follow. If it was closer to me I will go every day.
It was a great overall experience for us and our dog. However, the stream is a must do when you visit this location as it can be hot otherwise, but $60 total was a little much for an hour here. Would frequent it more if it was a little bit less money.
We had such a great time! We got our workout in heading back to the car, but it was worth it because Dottie had so much fun playing in the stream and running around. She definitely didn't want to leave:) We had great directions before we arrived and the communication was fantastic. We can't wait to come back and stay longer!
Our dog had a great time hiking through this property. Great safe alternative for dogs who like to hike off leash. The hosts were very attentive with directions and made us feel welcomed. Be aware that the terrain is mostly steep so be prepared for some hiking. And since the property is remote, remember that phone service is spotty. Also make sure to bring poop bags and water bowl/bottle. The place is beautiful and we definitely plan on coming back.
Wonderful experience would definitely come back and tell family and friends about this place also our pup love it he had a blast just running around playing in the creek and chasing lizards lol
Beautiful place to be with your fur babies and kids very peaceful can’t wait to go again
It was a wonderful time! We did the river add on and it was a small hike but absolutely worth it! The owners were accommodating and gave good direction!
The stream habitat is great! My dogs absolutely loved walking in the water and climbing over the rocks! One thing to note is the hike down to the stream is a tad steep in a few sections. I went here with my parents and my mom had some trouble navigating some of the terrain. Wear proper shoes and make sure you are prepared for hiking up and down some hills. On the way to the sniffspot we got painfully lost despite the host giving us instructions. The location is rural and the roads to the location are long, windy, mountain roads. You don't need 4wd but be prepared if those roads make you nervous. When I got lost (multiple times) I called the host of the property and they were very helpful and patient with reorienting me. On the way out we got a little turned around AGAIN because our phone wouldn't connect to GPS. We weren't able to do the lemonade add on because their vehicle had a flat tire, so she offered to refund me, give me more time, or to take some avocados. We went with the refund. Overall it was great once we got to exploring the area. The stream had a nice sitting area to lounge in while the dogs played in the stream which my parents really enjoyed. Getting to and from the sniffspot was a little stressful but I'd say the experience was worth it!
The trail and area are beautiful and the drive to the farm was very scenic. Be sure to pay attention to the directions Alma sends since google maps did steer me wrong initially. My dog does not do a lot of hiking so I was a bit over ambitious in thinking we could do the full creek hike, but we had a lovely time enjoying the views and taking it slow. I also was able to order some produce from the farm ahead of time which was awesome. The hosts were very accommodating and offered to give us a ride back from the creek if we needed it. Highly recommended!
We had such a great experience! We came from downtown San Diego so our dogs were so excited to explore the area! They loved running through the stream and climbing all of the rocks. The set up was really nice with a picnic table, multiple chairs with umbrellas on a nice sanded beach type area, as well as a hammock. We could’ve definitely spent the entire day here!
Our dog had a lot of fun with the stream hike!
Our dogs absolutely loved coming here! There was lots of space for them to roam free and run through the trees. They enjoyed playing together in the creek and walking through the trail. Overall they had the best time!
Alma and David’s place was amazing! The directions were clear and it was so wonderful to be able to let my fearful pup off leash for an adventure.
The property was lovely and the dogs had a great time. There is some steep terrain so if your dogs are bozos like mine, maybe keep them on leash :)
We loved it! We love trails so much so to have one privately was so cool. I took my four girls in the morning, alma was awesome and instructions were very clear! There are some sloped parts and elevation so even though my dogs can be off leash, they aren’t the most obedient, and ran too far ahead from us for comfort so we leashed them. Trails were clean and stream was such a blast!! We were finally able to relax and let them off leash at the stream. They had Zoomies, wrestled with each other, and lots and lots of sniffs. We are definitely going back. Thank you Alma and David for providing such a fun safe space for the fido kiddos 🐾
This was awesome! They were so kind!! Beautiful place!! The hike to the creek is steep, (we underestimated the other reviews) my mom is a bit older, she struggled but killed it! The dogs loved it, and I felt so comfortable letting them roam! Will be back for sure!
Fun adventure with my pups
Very cute and fun spot!
My family and I loved this place! We took 5 dogs total and they all loved it! The hike was steep but my pups didn’t mind it at all, even the little oldest. They all loved the creek. We all had an amazing time! Definitely coming back with the family!🤍
The host’s communication and directions, which included pictures, were spot on. Super easy to find. When we got there we really didn’t know what to expect and the host even gave us options. Which we didn’t need because the hike was beautiful, mostly shady, and easy for our little dogs to navigate. The experience was exactly what I wanted for my dogs. I will definitely be reserving this spot again. I’ve even already recommended it friends. Thank you to the hosts for providing a safe and private experience for beloved furry family members.
This was our second time going here and we loved it even more than last time! We booked the stream hike and HIGHLY recommend it! If you have a senior dog like us, we you might need to help them up on the way back as some parts can be pretty steep, but our girl handled it just fine :)
We had such a great time at this SniffSpot! Tons of room to explore and the creek is fantastic. There was a little bit of a technical difficulty at the gate that stopped us from being able to start on time, but the owner graciously let us extend our time because of this. We’ll definitely be back!
Directions were perfect, found it with no issues. My pup had a blast! The stream trail was so much fun! My pup had zoomies jumping in and out of the water, exploring and sniffing everything. We got to pick some avocados and ride in the ATV with Alma where she shared some history of the ranch, it was a great time. Can’t wait to come back.
Beautiful area! It's difficult to take four dogs out to parks but this was perfect for them!
Another great visit for our pack of 3!
We had an amazing time with our three dogs! It’s such a beautiful place to spend some time! I definitely recommend doing the creek hike! Only thing to note is that some of the hills are quite steep so make sure you wear shoes with good tread.
David & Alma are great hosts with an incredible, special chunk of land with beautiful surroundings. We got to let our dog off leash for the first time and we all had an incredible time with her as she splashed around in the stream. Highly recommend.
This place was fantastic! Plenty of room for my reactive dog who got to roam free, which he doesn’t get to do often. We missed the turn to get there and Alma was very considerate and showed us the way. Will definitely be back!
No words for how awesome this place is! Our dogs had so much fun!! It’s pretty far drive for us but we will still be back. This place is pretty much unbeatable.
Beautiful location. Moderate hike and great pay off!
Great place to hang out with your pup off leash and walk around some wilderness and play in some nice water.
AMAZING SPACE! 💛
We booked the stream as well as the ATV as we wanted our furbaby to have a new experience and oh boy did we have fun! The hosts are beyond helpful and friendly since the moment you get there. The ranch is huge and our doggy loves water and to run around. We cant wait to be back!!!
Instructions were very clear and everything was perfect!
What an absolutely great way to spend a few hours. We loved our time there and cannot wait to go back.
Host was very friendly and helpful in finding the place (it can be a little tricky) the trails would be great for larger dog… one of our dogs is a puppy and it was a little much for her. Also beware of foxtails. They’re everywhere.
OMG! Words can’t describe how happy my two dogs were doing this hike and playing in the water. We had the time of our lives. The fresh lemonade was delicious, the host was amazing giving us directions and helping us locate her place. We will be back soon.
SO MUCH FUN. Our dog loved the creek, and the trail! Perfect for off-We will definitely be back!
Super fun visit, this place is amazing! We will definitely come back!!!!
BOOK THE STREAM HIKE! 💦
Their ranch is beautiful, trees & mountains everywhere! our furrbabies loved the freedom & we were just so happy with our adventure!
We added the lemonade & it was delicious 🤤🍋
We had the BEST time visiting this spot!! Our dog Mick absolutely loved playing in the stream!
We had an amazing time!! Alma and David were really helpful and responsive. The experience exceeded our expectations and we will be back in the future. Thank you so much, we loved every second of it!! We totally recommend this hidden gem in Fallbrook.
My family and I had an amazing time walking our dog Luna! The directions provided by Alma made it super easy to locate and Luna was able to roam off leash to her heart’s content. She had the time of her life, and we’ll definitely be returning soon! :)
We had such an amazing time! Our dogs were in heaven and my moms little reactive dogs had a space to be off leash away from other dogs and people. Will definitely be coming back!
Beautiful place and so amazing to have it all to ourselves. The hosts were great! We’ll be back!
The stream walk is Amazing! Simba loves the steam keep running around the water. We have so much fan here. Definitely will book the second
My pups BEST DAY EVER! We chose the stream hike and we were amazed at how serene and beautiful the spot was. Being able to allow my dogs off leash to run and just be dogs was such a special treat. They had a blast running down the trails and jumped right in when we reached the stream—super refreshing after a quick hike. Relaxing and gorgeous area with 4 chairs, an umbrella, sandy beach, picnic table, swing, and hammock. David and Alma were so accommodating and sweet. We are already looking forward to our next visit.
Great location the dogs loved every minute of it! and we loved the fresh juices after! Highly recommended!
Book the creek experience! The lemonade was seriously amazing. My pups loved it and we will be back !!
Had rented for 2 hrs. Did the stream trail. Had a ball the dogs had a wonderful time. Loved sniffing all around and in the water. Great hosts and directions. The trail to the stream is pretty hilly and we were not in the best shape so it took a minute. If you do the stream bring extra pair of shoes and socks because it is more fun going in the stream with the pups. It is messy dirt and sand but well worth it. Chairs and Picnic table and hammock. I would say less than two hours won’t allow for all the cool things they can do.
I would say the only downside is there were these black flying bugs (like knats all over) so spray yourself. But overall great time and will come back. Loved seeing my dogs just having a blast!!
Very clear directions
Clear trail and pathways
Host were communicative
Perfect place to pitch up for a picnic, play some card games and let your pup wander! Hiking trails are short (about 30min), but steep.
This place is a hidden gem, well worth every penny! If your dogs love the water, do the stream hike.
Amazing! Had lots of fun, Host were super nice and helpful.
The beautiful drive to this location was just the start of a great day. It was easy to find with the directions given by the hosts. The short hike to the stream makes it nice for all ages and short snout dogs. Great views of the valley along the trails. The stream area was very relaxing, void of outside noises with clean chairs and picnic table. The stream was extremely pet friendly, not deep or aggressive. Our boxer had a great time running and exploring off leash. Alma was very welcoming and hospitable. All around experience was perfect. Definitely making this location our go to.
This was absolutely the most amazing experience! My pup had the day of her dreams being able to hike and play safely off leash. The property is gorgeous and full of lots of trees and plants for your doggo to sniff and explore. The creek area is paradise and so much fun. There's even a little sandy beach area! I could not recommend going more and I can't wait til we go again so we can try out all the other amazing extras that are offered!
This location was more beautiful than I had expected. Driving in, (from Los Angeles) my two girls were ecstatic to finally get out of the car and run after their noses to get lost in nature. Thankfully, this spot has much to offer! Exploring trails was a first for my two shelter dogs; their happy wagging tails along the private hike was just what I had been hoping for. We opted to go the the creek and I cannot imagine not doing that... The swiftly flowing water is crisp and clear, and shallow enough that everyone can enjoy. My only regret is not spending more time there, which is why I will definitely return. Thank you to David and Alma for sharing this beautiful property with us dog-loving adventurers!
My doggos had a great time! We opted to adventure in the orchard and had a nice time following the roads. It had rained recently and my dogs were DELIGHTED to find a decent sized puddle to romp around in. The property is fenced in, but there are driveways that have openings to the road. If your dogs stay close or have good recall it is not an issue. My dogs wander a bit ahead, but had no issues turning away from the openings to head back into the orchard. The roads in the orchard are compacted dirt making them easy to walk, but some sections are a bit steep. My dogs and I both got a good workout. Loved it! I live in Downtown San Diego and think this was worth the drive out!
This place was magical for people and the pups! We did the creek hike, it was relatively short and the creek was SO much fun to explore and play around! There was even a swing, hammock, picnic table, and comfy chairs! Such a lovely visit! Would definitely recommend!
David and Alma were wonderful hosts and their property is amazing! They reached out and provided clear directions with pictures and the hike and stream were perfect for our pups. Will definitely visit again 🐾🥑
What a fun place to explore with our dogs! It’s about a 1 hour drive from San Diego, but so worth it. The creek is beautiful and worth adding on. Alma is a great, responsive host and provided clear directions - follow the directions she sends and you’ll be just fine :)
We were a little lost and David and Alma helped us find our way to the trail. We did not get stream hike add on, but we were given the option to add it after we arrived. The stream hike is a must if your dog loves water. We ended up spending all our time by the stream while my dog jumped around and explored the water and surrounding area.
This place was Incredible- we were lucky to be able to experience it! We brought our four dogs and to see them be able to run around and sniff everything off leash (while also getting to practice their recall) was so amazing.
And 10/10 recommend adding the stream. Our pups loved it. We will be back and plan to bring a bag lunch with us next time!
One small note- the walk/hike down to the stream is definitely steep! So if you have hiking poles, bring them. We managed fine without them and so did my parents who came with us but they would’ve made our lives easier for sure!
100% will be back again. Such a beautiful property and our dog loved it. Alma and David were very nice and explained everything we needed to know before getting there and even when we arrived. Bring some comfy walking shoes and water and have a blast
Overall we had a great experience! There were about 2 miles of trails, which were quite fun to explore but not as much as I expected. The dogs sure didn't mind us walking the same trails a few times - they just loved to run & sniff & play! The stream was a very cool, well-maintained space with chairs, hammocks, a picnic table, etc - expect to pay for access to it though, it's tough to avoid, as signs will point you there and you'll end up there easily, especially since there's not a long length of trails to explore otherwise. Excellent views all around, lots of shade, felt very safe for the dogs to run. There were some steep sections of trail, so bring good shoes. Host was kind and helpful, sent us detailed directions with pictures so we couldn't get lost on the drive up even with the spotty cell service. All in all, a great time!
Milhouse celebrated his 7th birthday here and he had a blast. We usually do a hike for his bday but he’s reactive to dogs and has gotten attacked often (he just has that punchable face). It was nice for me to not have to be on alert knowing we’d have the space to myself. Milhouse lived his best life. First time off leash without concern. Thank y’all. We will be back for future birthdays.
I've been to Alma & David's spot multiple times with my reactive dog, but this was the first time I went down to the creek and I LOVED it! It's such a relaxing area, large enough that Kono could explore while I sat in the lounge chair and relaxed, but not so large that I worried about him getting swept away :D We'll be back for the creek hike for sure!
This place is AMAZING!!! As soon as we parked my Doodle got to explore off leash and live his best life. The creek was crystal clear and provided an awesome picnic spot for me and my son. If you are looking for an adventure this is the spot for you, thank you so much to our amazing hosts🙏🏻
We had a great time! The stream is so relaxing and it was a great way to introduce to water to our dog. Thanks so much!
Absolutely incredible! Would highly recommend avocado and tangerine picking. Also best lemonade I have ever had!! Would go again.
Wonderful location with shade and a bit of a workout. My boy loved it!
Excellent communication! Alma was great in sending information before arrival and checking in on us that everything was going great. The creek was wonderful and our pups jumped right in the water. Great spot to allow hiking and off-leash play without having to worry about other dogs. Definitely plan to visit again in the future and will recommend to friends! :)
What a fun couple hours with our pup! We all had a blast and will definitely be back! She loved running through the creek & being able to be off leash.
We had a great time with our pup! It was super safe and loved seeing him off leash. We enjoyed having the farm to ourselves and not having to worry about running into another dog. We paid extra for the hike and we are so glad we did. We will definitely be back!
This place is heaven on earth! Our dog had such a great time running around off leash, we got to work on recall training and it felt nice knowing we wouldn’t bump into people or other dogs on the trail. And the creek was beautiful. This was our first Sniffspot experience, we had to drive two hours but it was so worth it, the directions given to us by the hosts were also very easy to understand, we had no trouble finding our way there. We will definitely be coming here often. Thank you so much David and Alma!
This spot was a dream! We drove all the way from LA and it was worth the trek. We were late coming in and the hosts graciously gifted us extra time to make up for it. They were also super communicative and gave very clear photo instructions on how to access the property and trails.
We added the stream hike and definitely recommend it. Next time I think I’ll pick some tangerines too.
Can’t wait to visit again.
Our dogs really enjoyed this property. Lots of space to run, well maintained and they LOVED the creek area. We will definitely be back. Make sure to save both the driving and trail directions they provide ahead of time!
Alma was super quick at responding! She provides detailed directions so don’t follow your GPS all the way! It’s fully enclosed so I felt very comfortable letting my dog off leash. There are some steep inclines so be aware of that. The creek was awesome and the dogs had SO MUCH FUN! I highly recommend bringing your pup here for a visit.
Beautiful trails and our dog had a great time. Host was very nice and helpful by including maps and directions around the property.
Such a beautiful property for our pup to explore! This was our first time using Sniffspot and it was a great and easy experience. Alma and David were wonderful at communicating and sending detailed directions. They even checked in with us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and had everything we needed. Thanks again and we hope to visit again soon!
This time, I added the creek hike and it was amazing. The area is set up with chairs and a picnic table. The weather was perfect and the dogs and humans both enjoyed splashing in the stream. My almost twelve year old Aussie girl had a ball sniffing everywhere and snorting through the leaves. Oh, and the lemonade is to die for. We can't wait to go back!
wonderful spot for energetic pups! Especially if they like splashing water.
Def worth the money! So if you are on the fence about reserving this spot, I am telling you… do it! And reserve the creek!! I promise it is worth every penny. Me and my sister and the 4 puppies loved it! And will come back!
Also pay attention to directions given by host. Me and my sister did not (we both just followed gps in the car) and definitely ended up in an extremely bumpy dirt road to arrive. Our bad. There is a gate that we needed to turn into and it was a whole lot easier to go through that route.
Wonderful sniffspot! You basically rent out a whole hiking trail to yourselves..it was fantastic! Alma was a great host! She is extremely kind and incredibly helpful!
Side note, we definitely recommend adding the stream to your hike..our pups LOVED it! Can't wait to come back!
Great place to hike with furry friends!
My pup has a blast at Choice Avocados! He loves to roam and explore and was able to do that, and more! We chose a 2 hour excursion plus access to the creek. It was a great relief for him to cool off in the fresh flowing waters. There is a lot of hiking trails with beautiful views. I felt safe within the property having him off leash. Will definitely go again!
This place was my dogs Disneyland. My dog doesn’t do well with rude dogs and unfortunately where I live there are a lot. It was SO nice to have the place to ourselves to explore without the worry of running into others. It’s is absolutely beautiful! Tons of room to run, hills, trees and of course an amazing stream and beach area to play in. (Pay for the stream hike) Totally worth the trip and the extra. There’s a swing, hammock and a picnic bench. Bring a lunch and enjoy! So thankful they share their property for my pup to enjoy his best life!
We travel from San Francisco and come to San Diego often to visit. My rescue pittie Cassie gets to visit her BFF Orbit and this awesome sniff spot allows them to run free together without worry! The hosts are wonderful and it’s such a beautiful location. We definitely plan to spend time here every time we visit SoCal!
This was the best ever! Not only did my dog thoroughly enjoy it, but so did we!! It took me a little bit of time to get to the stream due to a recent back injury, and Alma was so great that she gave us extra time and even offered to help us get back without walking. The whole experience was truly wonderful and absolutely enjoyable. We will be going back over and over!
Beautiful location! The whole family had an amazing time, especially my Golden. Very relaxing. The stream is a must! Alma is a great host. We will definitely be back!!
We had a blast! So relaxing, our little girl Butter loved splashing around in the water. Alma walked us through the directions as we lost cell service for a few min and it was no prob getting there. Never put a leash on our girl, just the way she likes it. Nature at its best
Great scenery for a relaxing outing with your pup! The stream was perfect. Our dog loved the water and zooming around the trail. Very safe and great spot to relax and be outside. Will be back!
Had such a good time on my second visit to this sniff spot. This time I took my anxious/ reactive dog with me because I felt safe bringing him there after my first visit. He had the time of his life, and I felt safe having him there. I booked the time slot without too much notice, and Alma and David were kind and accommodating, and made me and my dogs feel safe. I can't wait to go back
Absolutely wonderful experience! This was our first SnifSpot experience and it was amazing. Host was friendly and kind, we can’t wait to visit again when we’re back in San Diego!
What a treasure this is! Heaven for pets and folks alike. So peaceful and refreshing. You must try the organic lemonade with organic dragon fruit, lemons and honey all from their location; Amazing!!! Next time I will definitely try the picnic! The hosts were above and beyond hospitable and welcoming as well. We will definitely be back!
A bit hard to find but magical once there! Great time for the dogs and kids (and adults). Definitely get the lunch and creek add-on! Really one-of-a-kind experience and fantastic memory!
This was my second visit and it was so seamless to check in and go on the trails. I love this private hike and will be back again for a third visit soon!
This was our first time using Sniffspot and it did not disappoint! My dog thoroughly enjoyed herself. We decided to add on the creek hike and it is a must! We will be back again!
This was a great location for our pup to roam around
What a magical day trip! The whole family loved the hike and stream time - especially oso- he was beyond excited!
Gorgeous spot, remote enough we didn't deal with anybody or anything, and the boofer had a blast. Will definitely be back!
While on an out of town trip for a scentwork competition this weekend we wanted to take our three dogs for a hike. Not knowing the local area or which public hiking trails were over crowded or unsafe we chose to rent this wonderful Sniffspot. I really appreciated that clear instructions sent ahead of time for finding the property, including photos! The host called right when I arrived and gave directions to the trail. The dogs had a blast racing up and down the trail and playing in the creek. Thanks so much for sharing your property with us! We hope to return next time we’re in town!
We had the best time today! I have a high drive dog, so dog parks are places that we stay away from and my dog needs space and room to run free. She loves off leash hikes but its hard to find places to do that. I am so glad I found this place! My dog could run free and my my teens/tween had an equally fantastic time. They loved the creek! My kids could be kids and my dog could be a dog without worrying about other dogs or people. We would definitely book again. Thank you so much!
Great time! Very helpful hosts
First time using sniffspot. Host communicated well, very considerate, helpful, friendly. Easy going. The hike downward to stream was kind of steep. But definitely worth it. So relaxing, fresh, we loved it. Our dogs had a great time. Very safe. Beautiful. Host offered to pick us up if walking back was too rough. It was we are out of shape. The ride back was fun. This spot is definitely recommended.
This place was great to let my two girls be free and run around. The stream was also great. We will definitely be back. Very beautiful property
We had so much fun here! The hosts were great, helped us find our way and were very welcoming. They said to call if we needed any assistance and we felt very safe. I have a reactive dog who I didn't bring, but would feel safe bringing him in the future because we were the only ones there and then property owners asked whether our dog were reactive or if they could say hello. All around wonderful experience and cannot wait to visit again! The property was gorgeous, our dogs had so much space to run around and we got lots of beautiful pictures. Stream hike is definitely worth it.
This Sniffspot was a group favorite! It was perfectly remote with a beautiful stream that allowed our pups to live life off leash. We will definitely be back!
The stream is beautiful just as described! It’s definitely a picnic worthy place and dip your toes in water. I wish we were more prepared for it and we arrived a bit late so hardly did any hiking, but I would definitely come back!
My dogs had absolutely the best time and Alma was so friendly and helpful!! We will definitely be back. ❤🐾
Nice hiking thru the trees. Calm, quiet relaxing...
Our dogs and I had such a wonderful time. We had no problem contacting the host and everything went smoothly. I hope to come back soon!
Our favorite place!
Beautiful spot. Eager to return.
Very remote location, use the hosts directions and not gps. 80 min from San Diego. I didn’t do any extra add-ons and I didn’t think it was worth the cost or drive so I should have added on. The basic trail was short but nice, all of the experience was along a muddy trail, no open fields to run. Met host on the trail in an ATV unexpectedly, she was kind and patient but definitely put my fearful dog in a mood. You will also have to drive back with your dogs poop, no bins to dispose of. Decent experience but probably would not book again.
Very lovely space for my dog to explore. He was exhausted afterwards in the best way. A really great place for him to decompress. The road is very rocky/rough driving wise but worth it once you arrive.
Wonderful hike around the avocado grove! The host came out to greet us when we arrived, but otherwise we saw no other people or dogs. The area is fenced in except for a gate that we drove through – not sure if they closed that behind us or not, but we kept our dog on a long line. Would definitely book again!
Great spot for hiking and for our dog to run around totally free without other dogs. We will be back for sure 🙂
This was absolutely worth the two hour drive from LA. You’re essentially renting out your own private hiking trail. Great for recall practice with my reactive dog. I will definitely be back. I didn’t do the creek trail but I think if I do it in the future, I’ll book two hours to make sure I have time! Thank you for this great spot!
Loved the spot - my lab Bruce had a blast exploring! It rained a lot recently so we weren’t able to walk along the creek as much as you probably can sometimes but the upside was there was enough water to swim in. Bruce definitely approved!
The trail was beautiful and Alma provided excellent directions and pics to get us there. I texted her to let her know we were turning onto her street, and she told me to call when we parked. We called her a couple of times, as well as texted, but we couldn't get through to her. Be aware that reception is spotty out there, so you may not be able to communicate with the host.
Our dog had a blast sniffing and exploring, and we had our first stress-free experience on a trail knowing there would be no encounters with other dogs. Be prepared, the trail is quite steep and slippery in some parts. We enjoyed taking in the views and relaxing in the open space.
There were a couple of turns and forks in the road, and we must've went the wrong way because we couldn't figure out which way to go, so we decided to turn around so we wouldn't get lost. To be clear, Alma did provide a map of our trail, but I guess we had a bit of trouble reading it. Not her fault. We couldn't find any trash cans or water provided for our dog, but maybe they were at the end of the trail, which we never made it to. Overall, we had a great experience, and we are excited to go back. Definitely worth the drive from San Diego.
By far, the best sniffspot I have been to. Alma was such a sweet and hospitable host. The creek is a must!!!! The dogs absolutely loved it and they had a great time. The land was beautiful and there was a nice little spot by the creek to relax while the dogs frolicked.
Our dog had so much fun here today. We upgraded to the stream hike and it was definitely worth it. Our dog loved the water and we enjoyed the beautiful views. Alma was very responsive and helpful and provided clear maps and directions. We will be back!
This is our new favorite Sniffspot! Our dog had so much fun running free without fear of running into other dogs. The host was so kind and helped us navigate all of the trails. We will be back and I highly recommend!
This is a beautiful and natural, rugged property with clear trails; my hound had the best birthday exploring everything. Wear your hiking shoes. Host friendly and communicative. The basic booking was a big loop around/through the 20 acre avocado grove. We got a map with a hiking loop and driving directions beforehand; follow the instructions to turn off the main road at the metal gate with two signs (from the south)
There are several trails, and host responded immediately to texts when I wasn't sure if we were still on the loop. Once you get up the trail turn right at the water tank for the loop. Host said we could continue on past the water tank to the next uphill trail off to the right, which ended in a grassy area with pretty views. If you continue on further the creek trail offshoots down/right from the main trail (we did not book the creek add-on but host kindly gifted that while we still had a bit of time left on the booking, and it is a gorgeous place just a short downhill hike into the canyon) ... Host said we could have continued on past the river trail to another dead-end trail, but we ran out of time. Had we simply meandered along the avocado grove loop I imagine we would have completed that in about 30-45 minutes with playing & exploring.
Yes it is pricier than some of the other sniffspots, but if your dog is crazy and loves to explore like mine, it is completely worth it for the exercise and enrichment; nothing compares to off-leash adventures. I'm not sure I would be able to keep my hound (who has zero regard for my bank account) from the river now that she knows where the trail is, but we will be back for regular bookings and exercise.
Thanks to the hosts for sharing this piece of heaven.
Tell the host if your dog is reactive, they will stay out of sight.
Very beautiful area. Our pup is quite reactive and the creek was far enough from any distractions or traffic. Alma is very kind and helpful. Definitely will go back.
My pup and I loved the place and will be back soon . David and Alma are very friendly . Thank you for having us today ! My pup has been sleeping since we got home :)
5 stars for the adventure. Beautiful and a great steep hike to get back to car👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 only lost a star for the price
I would give 10 stars if I could. Hosts were gracious and informative. The property was clean, well maintained and beautiful. My dogs had so much fun that they were fast asleep before we got to the main road home. So much fun!
Great place, puppers enjoyed it very much!
We had such an amazing time! Highly recommend booking the stream if you’re planning on being there for a few hours!
Amazing! We brought our two dogs, who otherwise live in a small yard…and they were thrilled!! The stream is a dog magnet. Our boxer and lab mix immediately gravitated toward it, and were in total paradise. The little “beach” next to the stream is so cute, equipped with chairs and an umbrella - we enjoyed sandwiches and a beer while the dogs ran around sniffing and submerging.
We’ll definitely come back and recommend this location to friends/dog owners!
We loved it thank you so much again!! Galileo had the best time. Our favorite part was the stream. We will definitely be back ❤️
Alma and David were such welcoming hosts, and completely understood how difficult it is to find nature spots for a reactive dog to enjoy. We’re so grateful they’ve opened their space to other dog families.
We did the "add-on" stream hike, which involved a very steep trail down to the stream, but culminated in a lovely shaded spot complete with a tree swing over the water, and picnic areas on both sides of the stream with chairs to watch our dog play in the water. Even though the temperature was in the high 80’s, the spot was shaded and cool, and the water was crystal clear and cold, about 1-2 ft deep in November. Our rescue German Shepherd loved every minute of it from being able to go off leash and enjoy the natural setting to splashing around in the water and clambering over rocks. And it was such a relief for us not to worry about other people/dogs/animals showing up!
We ordered the add-on picnic lunch by the stream, which our hosts brought down via ATV. Also well worth it! An amazing charcuterie board, large croissant sandwiches, and fruit from the farm. The hike down and fresh air gave us an appetite and it was all delicious. (The steep hike back up with full stomachs was a challenge!)
We will definitely be back. I’m sure Ellie can’t wait!
Amazing time with the dogs and my family! The hosts were so sweet and caring. Will definitely be coming back soon.
This is a great location for a hike with your dogs. I took my 18 month old BC/ACD and my 11 year old Aussie. It is hilly with clearly marked paths among the avocado trees. There is quite a bit of shade which is nice. I plan to go back and take advantage of some of the other amenities like lunch and lemonade. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming.
This spot was amazing!! Clear directions and the stream trail was really nice. My dog got to run around and enjoy the cool water. Thank you!
Definitely will be coming back! Alma was a pleasure to meet and the ranch was perfect for our very reactive dogs!
Definitely recommend Choice Avocados for a fun day with your pups! This was the first time we got to hike off-leash with our reactive dog, and it felt very safe! She also got to run around the area by the stream, and play in the water. Her best day ever! Also great for training recall!
This place is beautiful. My pup is dog reactive so this place was perfect to roam around stress free. The stream on the bottom was clean and there was plenty of water to cool off. I wasn’t too sure what the stream hike was, as there wasn’t really a clear path. But nevertheless, enjoyed the water. The trails are mostly shaded by the avocado trees. Some areas are very steep to hike so I’d bring decent shoes. Book 2 hours at least to not feel rushed. There is minimal areas of cell service so plan accordingly. Thank you for opening up this beautiful space for our furry children. I would definitely come back.
My partner and I had a wonderful time exploring the property with our dog! He is reactive with other dogs so it was wonderful having the property to ourselves where he could run, sniff, and explore without getting activated which is stressful for us all.
This spot is amazing! It was lightly raining on and off and it didn't ruin the experience at all, rain or shine your dogs will love it. I went in late october with a blue heeler and a yorkie. The stream was still a good temperature to stay in and be comfortable and have the dogs jump around. Only a few areas of the main stream were deeper than my heelers shoulders and the the current is nothing to worry about even for smaller dogs. The stream area is large and secluded, more than enough space to play fetch, run around, etc.
I drove from San Diego for context. Getting to the location you'll eventually lose cellular service but the hosts provide very detailed directions, maps, and pictures to get you there with no difficulty as well as a phone number which they respond to texts and calls quickly. The hosts run their spot very professionally and friendly, great communication from beginning to end. I only reserved the general sniffspot and the stream walk add-on but I know they offer a lot more.
What a relaxing and stress-free day! We have a reactive dog and allowing him off-leash with the peace of mind that he is the only dog on property was a dream come true. He was so happy. The location is perfect, a hike by the creek and some relaxing in the chairs. Alma and David were very responsive and very friendly! We highly recommend taking your pup here for a stress-free day! Thank you for providing this wonderful service!!
The ranch is a great area for dogs to come and explore off leash with peace of mind. My dog and I did the hike down to the creek and my dog loved exploring down there and building confidence in new situations. I will note that the creek hike is a pretty steep hike both up and down, although pretty short (15 mins). If you or your dog are not in the best condition or recovering from injury I wouldn’t suggest that add on. But a lovely property and very peaceful to hangout by the creek where they have chairs in the sand along the creek and a swing over the water and hammock.
We had an amazing time! Our dog Luka loved the water area. There was a nice shaded area for us to sit while he ran around adventuring. I’ll be back for sure!
Had a blast exploring with Navi! She enjoyed splashing around in the creek and the short nap in the hammock was divine. Can't wait to bring friends back again and again!
First time booking a Sniffspot and couldn't have asked for a better location or host. Alma & David were incredibly welcoming and made the hour-long trek from Orange County worthwhile. Our Great Pyrenees and German Shepherd had a blast hiking and playing in the stream while we thoroughly enjoyed the delicious guacamole & refreshing lemonade (add-ons). The hosts checked-in on us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and even graciously brought back our giant breed dog who raced back to their home :). Enthusiastically recommend this beautiful setting for your dogs to explore and highly encourage you to add-on some of their delicious offerings.
My dogs loved it and it was so great to know we had it all to ourselves and would not run into any other dogs. We hiked down to the creek and they had a blast. We will definitely be back again!
So relaxing.. my dog is aggressive so he doesn’t get to go off leash often when I live. So letting him run free and play in the water was the best for him. He had so much fun and so did I:)
This place was amazing, my dogs had the best time playing in the stream and being able to run around and explore. It was so nice to not have to be worried about them getting into trouble or coming across other dogs or people. We have a hard time finding locations to let them off leash without a lot of other dogs around. We will be back again for sure.
I don’t have enough words to describe this place! This place was recommended by my trainer as my pup is struggling with leash reactivity. So being able to provide an outlet to sniff and decompress without worrying about other dogs or being in an open area gave me so much reassurance! From moment I arrived, communication was stellar with the hosts. They provided maps and directions upon booking to better guide me and visuals definitely helped! I also added an extra add on for the stream hike which to be honest, was a bit disappointing for an extra $30 because it seemed as if the trails connected. I’m not sure if there was more than one area, but I couldn’t pass water since my pup is a huge water lover! Despite that, my pup had so much fun romping around and taking a splash at the stream. There was a lot of shade near the stream and throughout the trail, but it did get warm. I’d highly recommend this place to all our friends and next time would start earlier! We stayed 3 hours from 9:30am-12:30pm and it was plenty of time although I’m sure my pup would think differently. Pro tip: wear comfortable shoes as some parts are steep hills! Thank you for hosting us and being so patient and accommodating! ♥️
I came here with my English Golden Retriever and it was fantastic! She likes to go on adventures rather than socializing with other dogs so unleashing my dog for hiking and stream was perfect. It was worth of trying for my dog coming out here. I stayed for 4 hours with my own packed lunch and waters. The creek itself is not too big for not suitable for swimming, but water was really cool enough my dog to run around and come back to cool herself down.
For future comers, if you wish to stay long, itd be better to come early in the morning so u can enjoy more cool breeze. It’d be more fun if you bring more of your DIY lunch, toys, games, small tents, etc. I look forward for more visits :)
Thank you so much for ur awesome place, Alma!
Beautiful place. We had a lot of fun!!!
Great Sniffspot! My dog Loki had a lot of fun hiking and playing in the stream. The hike down and back up wasn’t too bad; I’m not in shape at all and was able to manage with some breaks along the way. It is fairly steep so if you have any mobility issues I would definitely take Alma and David’s offer to ride in their ATV. Overall amazing place to roam around for a bit!
We brought our reactive dog to Choice Avocado & she had so much fun! There were no people or dogs around so it was perfect for her. Our host was so nice to helps up when we got turned around and went the wrong way. Bring water for you & your pup and booties since the sand can hot. It’s not a long walk/hike but there are steep sections. We ended up at the creek & our dog played for as long as possible in the water. So much fun! We booked two hours & it was long enough but our dog would have stayed longer :) Also, the road near the location can be bumpy so low clearing cars would struggle. We drove a Subaru & got up there fine.
It’s always s fun visit! This time Aksel brought a friend along and they both had a blast!
Was our first time and my husband and I brought our 2 dogs. Our dogs are very reactive dogs and first time off leash adventuring and they did so well. It’s absolutely worth it to have privacy and a stress free environment. My dachshund absolutely loved the creek and my beagle loved jumping off the rocks. It’s also great for my beagle to get her sensory smells fulfilled. The walk down the trail was easy, but going back up was a bit of a struggle for someone like me. We must’ve adventured a little deep in the bushes because my husband walked into a few thick spider webs, and my dachshund got spiked balls stuck to her fur. So if you’re worried about that just stay on the paved way. Driving to the property was a bit confusing because the road was blocked off so we had to detour. (As of 8/21) We passed by the gate to entry at least 5 times before realizing it was the right gate (that’s on us) other than that, I would come back here again. If we lived closer we’d be here every weekend! Also, my dogs slept for 6 hours straight afterwards. This dog hiking experience was the best!
Our pups had an amazing time. I took all four and they had a blast on the trail and at the stream. It is very secluded with beautiful views. Will definitely be going back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with me.
It was really foggy on my drive up and I missed the turn and got slightly lost. I wasn’t too far away but Alma and her husband were kind enough to come where I was and allowed me to follow them back. Once there, my girls had a blast exploring the paths (and off path) and loved cooling off in the creek!!
My dogs had a great time running around. We will definitely be back!
The area and trail are so beuatiful! Be sure to wear decent hiking/trail shoes and you'll be all set for the hills. The trail is steep, but our dog who rarely gets to be off-leash had so much fun running and sniffing everything! He and our older dog LOVED the stream! Alma was great with communication before, during, and after our visit!
amazing spot! very peacful place down by the crick. perfect way for our dog both the hike down and up the trails and lay around. we were all very relax and worn out by the end of the day. and the host couldn't be more accomadting and welcoming. we will definitely come back!
This Sniffspot is great, my dog loved as well as the kids, the Polaris ride was awesome and Alma is very kind and patient with us, I definitely recommend this spot, absolutely beautiful.
This place is amazing. Perfect spot to enjoy a beautiful afternoon with your pup! Highly recommend the stream hike. It was a hot day but hiking through the stream was perfect to keep us cool with lots of shade. The communication with Alma was great. We will definitely be coming back!
We had a great time here. It took about 1.5 hrs, and that included some time to hang out by the mini beach. The path itself isn't long, but it is pretty steep going downhill, and a great work out coming back up. We did the stream hiking as an add on, but would skip that next time. There wasn't really a clear path so you had to hop back and forth on wet rocks, and we didn't get very far. We still had a great time and Alma was really nice and made us feel welcomed! Next time, we'll probably add picking our own avocados and/or fresh lemonade on a hot day instead. We spent about 1hr & 15 min. Plenty of time for the trail, rest at the beach area and let my feet dry off. Thank you for sharing your farm!
Our dog is very reactive and was never able to go on a hike with us. This visit was his very first hike and he loved it! Alma is so helpful. She sends detailed directions both for the drive and the trail. Finding the property was very easy. Hiking is very steep, so bring the right shoes. It's very quick downhill hike to the creek. My boys had more fun than the dog with the picnic, swing, and the water. We spent 2 hours which was perfect because you'll spend around 30 minutes getting there and back. We wanted plenty of time at the water. Alma made sure her dogs were put away for our arrival, which was so considerate of her. After the visit she texted to make sure we enjoyed our visit. We will be back over and over. This was a wonderful way to spend a weekend afternoon.
Loved it! My dog ran around off leash and didnt overheat because there was a mix of sun and shade along the path. the creek at the bottom is shallow and beautiful. Stunning property and such a spectacular find.
Going to Choice Avocados was such an awesome experience! My mom, our two dogs, and I did the creek experience and we all enjoyed it very much! I have a 12 lb schnauzer mix that does not like getting wet at all and I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun she had going across the creek! I will add that the creek depth is uneven, as one can imagine, so just keep an eye on your small pups who may step in a deep spot unexpectedly. Aside from that, you and your fur babies will have such a blast! There is plenty of shaded seating along the creek, a picnic table and a hammock. Alma was very nice and approachable, as well. Will definitely go back soon! :)
Arriving with AT&T, just know you will have little to no cell service! I was greeted by their 4 Malinoises coming up to my car (they were beautiful but definitely doing their job as protectors). I called as soon as I got there as I was instructed! Again, barely any cell service, but thankfully It went through. I was then greeted by Alma who told me what route to take the dogs on. It was a very downhill jaunt, but the dogs LOVED it. It was so nice to have an area just for them to be off leash and explore and not worry about any other dogs interfering. We made it down to the bottom where the creek was and the boys (my dogs) ran their heart out through it. It was BEAUTIFUL. Once done, we walked back up, and left! I texted as instructed and everything was super easy. Definitely will be back!
On a side note, I did find a tick on one of my dogs afterwards so I would suggest flea & tick prevention!
Loved it!! Will definitely come back. Great little trail to the stream where there’s a cute picinic area. We & our dogs had so much fun there. The hosts are super responsive and accommodating. Homemade lemonade is so yummy :) Overall, it’s a great experience.
Beautiful spot with plenty of space for our dog to explore. He loved playing in the creek! We came home with a wet, happy puppy. Alma was friendly and they have obviously taken care to make their visitors comfortable. Will definitely be visiting again.
Thanks again for another fun visit! Aksel loves coming here! So fun and exciting for dogs while being beautiful, relaxing and a good hike for people!
This place was absolutely amazing! make sure you dress appropriately (tennis shoes or hiking boots) and bring water. The host greeted us when we arrived and gave me directions to the creek. once we got there, my dog jumped right in. she ran & played and even took a nap before we hiked back up the hill. I will definitely go back here often.
Our dogs had a great time!
Beautiful place to bring your dogs! Steep hike back but owners offers to help if you struggle! My dog LOVED the creek and playing in the water.
Fantastic hosts! great communication. the stream was our own private oasis. 10/10 will be back!
This was the best birthday adventure (literally a dream come true) for my 4 dogs and family. 3 of our dogs are pitties, so finding large, secure spaces for them to run/play isn't easy. The ranch is slightly off the beaten path, but fear not because Alma is a wonderful, helpful host, and sends you maps prior to your visit. I highly recommend saving the maps, bc cell service is spotty, and they are quite helpful ;)
Thanks to other reviews, we made our reservation for 2 hours instead of 1. Honestly, we so enjoyed our visit, and could have stayed much longer. The ranch is large enough to roam and not see everything in 2 hours, so if you're on the fence about how long to stay, stay longer! Thank you again David and Alma for allowing my pack to explore your beautiful property, we can't wait to return for even longer next time!!
we are pretty convinced this is doggie heaven on earth. we’re almost tempted not to wrote a review to keep it our little secret! don’t wait — just book it!
Another fun and fantastic visit!
What a great spot for a private hike and splash around in the creek without having to worry about other dogs!
We did get a little confused with the directions but we called Alma and she kindly guided us to the spot. Plan to arrive a little earlier your first visit just in case.
The space isn’t 100% enclosed, there are two entrances with open access but they are quite far away from the trails. If your dog doesn’t have a solid recall and likes to go follow their nose, it may be best to bring a long line like we did.
All in all, our dog had an absolute blast here, we will definitely be returning for another visit.
Such an amazing spot. My dog had the best time ever running through the water playing fetch. We will definitely be back.
My dog can be reactive to other dogs, so this was such a wonderful opportunity to let him roam freely without the stress. The place itself is serene and beautiful, and Alma provided clear directions and was very easy to communicate with. Highly recommend this to anyone, and looking forward to our next visit!
My sister, my dog, and I spent two hours at Alma and David's, and it lived up to expectations. Alma was communicative about sending maps and answered all questions promptly. I met David when we arrived, and he was so kind and patient (I think I asked him to repeat directions about three times, b/c my brain can't seem to process directions the first two times!).
The property has a bunch of "mini" trails you can take, some shaded, some not. We also added on the stream hike, which was wonderful, especially since it was a bit hot today. My dog loved splashing around and jumping on the rocks. I wish that we had brought lunch so we could have eaten at the picnic table. All in all, it was a great day, and I was so happy that my dog could be free without having to worry about other humans or dogs. My dog does well in open areas, but she doesn't like crowds. Unfortunately, every dog-friendly place in LA is crowded. So, Alma and David's place was like a dream come true.
Thank you Alma and David for opening your property so that other dog owners can let their dogs be dogs without worry!
The host is very kind and the optional picnic lunch was phenomenal.
This place is doggy Disneyland. 10/10 definitely recommend.
Kirby had a great time and loved the stream. David was so helpful to us and we appreciated that, especially the rides to and from the bottom. Would’ve been a much longer walk then we thought. Thanks again.
Another fun day here with the dogs. they have so much fun exploring and playing in the creek! Great hosts and always available if you need anything.
Alma’s sniff spot was perfect. It was secluded and beautiful. The dogs loved it and the kiddos loved it. The 5 year old said “this is the best day of my life!”
Our visit was just heavenly! My husband kept telling me how awesome the property was. we booked our trip for one hour just to get the lay of the land. We will defintely stay longer next time. Good shoes are a must as there are parts that are pretty hilly. next time, were going to bring lunch too! our dogs were so happy - they were smiling!
Alma is such a great host and the property is amazing!! We had a great time!!
Absolutely amazing experience to share with your dogs! The fact that you can let your dogs off-leash with the reassurance that no other dogs will be present makes this experience everything you could ask for! Hosts are super nice and will help you if you get lost or get tired and need a ride back to your car!
We had such a wonderful time here with our dog. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this fenced in ranch to anyone wanting to hike in a safe place with their dog and enjoy a very scenic view.
awesome spot with awesome hosts. fantastic communication!!!
We really enjoyed our doggy day adventure at this unique Sniffspot! Alma did an excellent job sending detailed instructions and maps prior to our reservation. We were able to do a steep but short hike in and out to the creek where our 2 boxers enjoyed running around off-leash and playing in the water. There was a hammock, a picnic table, and chairs for us to relax in. It was a fun time for both humans and dogs alike! Thanks Alma and David for providing this lovely spot.
This place is the best!!! This was our first time using the sniff spot app and we couldn’t be happier with our experience! We have two bulldogs who don’t do well with other dogs and we finally have a way to bring adventure into their lives. We spent two hours hiking down to the coolest creek and playing with our dogs. They loved being off leash and wandering around enjoying all the smells and swimming in the creek. This gives us the freedom to let our dogs have fun with the security of knowing they are not going to be approached by strangers. Alma was super responsive and welcoming. She even sent accurate trail maps that helped a lot. We will definitely be coming back soon!
Alma was wonderful and made sure to provide us with instructions and maps via text to make sure we were able to find our way around the property! The small stream at the end of the path was really great and our dog loved it.
Me and my 9 month old puppy had a fantastic time exploring the trails and enjoying the peace and quiet of the location. The trails are very hilly, but there are plenty of shady spots. The property is beautiful, with tons of trees and views of mountains.
Beautiful location by water with hammock and swing and chairs. A lot of room for the dogs to Roam . They were great at communicating with us on where to go. It is a very steep walk but they did offer to come pick us up if we were too tired to make it back up. Our dogs had a blast And we did to did not want to leave.
What a magical place! We will definitely be back! Our two Australian Shepherds loved the creek! They enjoyed the hike up, out of the creek. Give yourself some time to get down and back if that is your goal. Our two year old loved playing on the swing and getting in the water. He felt like he was at the beach :)
We had a bit of a hard time finding the trail to get down to the creek (having a toddler with us made it a bit difficult to figure things out). The maps provided were awesome and the communication was great! We were driven down to the creek, which was incredibly generous!
We will be back!
It was an awesome space and my dog had a blast. The only issue is that it was pretty hard to find (but I'm also not great with maps). But the host was really nice and brought me to the right spot. Also make sure you bring good shoes and are sure footed if you want to walk around with your dog. Otherwise there is a nice place to sit, but I wanted to explore with my dog.
Had the perfect day on this organic avocado ranch with my Heeler girl. The hosts have their own dogs and made sure to round them all up before we started which made for a safe and fun experience for my reactive girl. The only downside to the day was having to leave!
Definitely look forward to visit often and again.
Wonderful hosts! What an adventure. The stream is an absolute gem. Huge hiking trails! I’ll definitely be back for another doggie day adventure! My puppy had a blast.
Wonderful property to have fun with your dogs!! We are looking forward to another visit soon.
Thank you so much Alma for assisting us and making sure we had a great time. :)
Best dog adventure day ever! Wonderful property and exceptional hosts. Alma was very helpful and ensured we found our way around the property. The dogs were in heaven and had so much fun exploring and playing in the creek. We'll definitely be back! 💕🐾💕🐾
My lab Ollie is begging me to give Doggy Day Adventures five stars, but I can't because I had a purpose for my visit today. I'll explain.
My husband is in a wheelchair and we are looking for someplace that we can all go to enjoy the outdoors in peace, let our dogs run off leash and do some off-leash training. The website indicated that Doggy Day Adventures was wheelchair accessible, but I did not ask the hosts how accessible their Sniffspot was because everyone's disability is different...I wanted to see for myself. The terrain is very steep, sandy, uneven, definitely not wheelchair friendly. We'll keep looking.
The trail/road is well marked, lots of shady spots, but because it's so steep and rough in some places, I recommend trail or athletic shoes. Ollie thoroughly enjoyed sniffing along the trail, playing in the creek (except when he lost his chuck-it ball) and exploring the picnic area.
The adventure Ollie and I had was definitely worthy of five stars and we will be back, just the two of us! If anyone finds Ollie's chuck-it ball, love it as much as he did!
Dogs and humans had a great time! Nice dirt trails around the property (a bit steep in parts, so wear good shoes), and a fun stream with chairs, picnic table and swing (perfect picnic spot).
Another fun visit at an awesome property with fantastic hosts! Aksel had the best time and didn’t want to leave so next time we will book a longer visit!
This is a beautiful location. We feel really fortunate to have found it. Can’t wait to return. Great day for pups and people.
We had an awesome adventure day at Dog Day Adventures! It’s a large, hilly property (organic avocado orchard) with a wonderful, shallow creek/small beach at one end of the property. Recommend to bring good walking/hiking shoes and plenty of water and consider making longer reservation - we’ll be making 2hr reservations or longer from now on! It’s quiet and provides plenty of opportunity for doggies to hike off leash and play in the cool creek water. Our doggie loved, loved it-did not want to leave! There’s even a table near the creek for a picnic or snack time. Owner is super friendly and responsive!
This place is HEAVEN! It's literally your own private trail. My dogs were so so happy exploring and knowing that we would not be ambushed by off-leash dogs was just the best. Since the pandemic, many of our go-to trails have been so crowded, it's just not fun for the dogs (or the humans)! Finding a place like this is a life saver.
Could ask for a better place to let our dogs run! Plenty of different trails to explore and the landing by the creek is shady and peaceful.
Our two dogs don’t have a lot of experience with recall and the still did really well here! Will return the first chance we get!
Best Sniffspot location EVER. There is just so much space to run and explore. Alma and David were welcoming and helpful and our time there was so relaxing. My boxer was so excited and happy here. So many sniffs. So much running! We are definitely planning on coming regularly.
Aksel and I had the best time at this Sniffspot! This property is so beautiful and peaceful with a nice road/trail to follow. Lots to explore and sniff plus a lovely “beach” spot down at the river/creek to play in the water. Alma was a very friendly and helpful host. We will be back!
Doggy Day Adventures is a wonderful place! Our dog Scout truly enjoyed the experience of running freely off leash to explore the beautiful surroundings. This property is so tranquil and peaceful. We loved playing in the stream with Scout and it was great to watch her be so happy while playing fetch in the water. The humans got to sit in a swing and enjoy being a kid again. We love Doggy Day Adventures! Most of all, our dog had the best day and she gives Doggy Day Adventures a rating of 10/10 wags! Our host was so welcoming, kind and helpful. She gave us great tips for our time there and even offered us a lift in her cool off road vehicle. Can’t say enough about this place!
