Popular private dog hiking trails near Falls Church, Virginia

Wellspring Farm

Come for our glorious sunrises on the creek and sunsets in the fields or just to enjoy the day exploring the fields and creek. Having lived with my two large golden doodles in Alexandria for 13 years, I’m excited to be able to share this land with city folk looking for some space for their furry friends to run freely! The dog area starts past the broken black fence behind the house and goes through the fields and into the woods. I would appreciate it if you would kindly please wait until you are past the broken fence to allow your dog to do any business. There is a creek in the woods that marks the edge of our property. To get to the creek, go past the broken fence and keep following the field down the hills to the back tree line. And then just keep walking; it’s about five minutes from the house to the trailhead. We have set out fluorescent yellow markers on the trees on the back tree line as you approach the trail. We also put up a blue sign that says “To The Creek” at the trail head. Come down the hill and take the trail to the right when you come to the first stream, when you see the red barn (follow the blue arrow markers). That trail will take you out to a spot where your dog can splash and even swim if they find the deep spots. All the fields behind the broken black fence are for the dogs. The deer seem to congregate in the rougher grass right behind the fence where there are old dog houses. I recommend keeping to the more mowed areas. A map from the parking to the creek trail: Getting to the creek - Wellspring Farm on AllTrails I am looking forward to having you and please reach out if you need anything special or want to chat before coming.

🏳️‍🌈Lauren's Private Dog Park In Reisterstown🏳️‍🌈

Hi everyone! I have a small 13 acre private farm in rural Reisterstown, Maryland. We are very secluded and offer a peaceful place to bring your furry friend for a relaxing time exploring our lush pastures and wooded trails. It’s the perfect location to get away from it all. It’s ideal for fearful dogs that need solitude. Bring your babe and enjoy! Guaranteed to have a relaxing, quiet time. I do have chickens in the back yard that will be locked up in a run during your visit. I will provide a water bowl, some dog toys, poop bags, trash can, and a couple sling chairs. You are welcome to bring a portable hammock or additional chairs, whatever makes you comfortable. Newly added shelter to stay out of the sun or rain! I only ask that you clean up after your pet and self and please put the toys back in the bucket for others to enjoy. Unfortunately, there isn’t a bathroom on-site other than big trees that is. Access to the woods can be from around the fenced area and into the trail near the bottom pasture gate. Or you can walk through the pasture, straight through the gate. Head up the hill. Stay right on the trail and you will do a full circle through the woods below the barn and then back onto the driveway to the house. Stay on the trail and you will stay on our property! You may see our puppy out from time to time but he will be kept confined in the yard around the house. He’s a baby and needs to pee a lot and get his ya yas out. I try to keep it to a minimum when guests are around though. If you see us out, come say hi if you like. We love having you! If you want privacy and peace, I got you! This is an inclusive environment 🏳️‍🌈… all are welcome!
