Sugar Bush Acres Off-Leash Trails

Please note that prices are in US$. Base rate of $10 is for 2 adults and 1 puppy. Additional adults and puppies are $5. Hello and welcome to our piece of paradise! Our property (45 acres) offers numerous walking trails and open spaces to romp and play. Your dog will enjoy an off-leash experience and a great opportunity to explore and be dogs! So many new smells they will be exhausted before you know it. Open field for you to play fetch or train. 100% totally private. No other dogs or humans during your time slot. We have approx 2.5 km of nature trails that weave their way through our 45 acre property. In summer and fall the trails are cleared and packed, but are hiking trails and appropriate footwear is recommended. In winter, trails are groomed and most of them are suitable for skijoring. There is a river that runs through the property and during the summer this is a great place for your pet to take a dip and cool off. A section along the River Trail has been cleared for entrance into the water and bench for you to sit on. There's also a one acre field at the top of the property for training or playing catch, east of the north limit. Various wildlife has been spotted on the property which provides excellent sniff opportunities for your pet. Located in Northern Ontario, expect mosquitos in spring, summer, and fall - dress accordingly and wear repellant if you so choose. If you have excellent recall your puppies can go off-leash. We ask that you wait until you are on the trails to release them. A recommend route is on the map and starts with heading north on the Orchard Trail, west on the North Limit, south on the Back 40, which then takes you down into the sugar bush. Continuing on Maple's Way there are several trails that branch off of it. Taking Mia's Loop will takes you east towards the road and loop back to the Sugar Bush Trail where you can cross over and head west to Chloe's loop or down to the river. Signs are posted at the beginning and end of each trail to help you navigate. Enjoy this time how you see fit and take nature in the best way possible. Please park to the right hand side of the barn. A map of the trails has been included in the pictures feel free to download or print. Copies are also available in the mail box by solar panels. Happy to get your feedback on the trails and your experience.

Dixie Mountain Delight Woods, Trails, and Field

**ALL PROFITS ARE DONATED TO FAMILY DOGS NEW LIFE SHELTER IN PORTLAND, OR*** Dixie Mountain Delight is a unique Sniffspot! It's a 10-acre property with several trails through rustic wooded areas and a large Field of Dreams (with an overlook) to enjoy. You (human) will get a pretty decent walk in along with your dog! Disappear into the woods with your doggo pack and explore the property. The main trail through the woods is a little over a quarter mile long, and there is plenty to sniff and explore along the trail. It is a hike with some slight inclines, but nothing very strenuous. The woods are very quiet and serene, but they are also robust and eagerly await your adventures! We recommend starting on the main trail that begins behind the barn and then either exploring more trails on the way to the field, or just heading directly to the field for wide-open fun. The Field of Dreams has tall grass with a mowed perimeter to easily walk around. Deer visit our field regularly, so hopefully, your pack will find some interesting things to sniff. There is a sitting area on the field for you to rest while your pack runs like the wind, explores, fetches, or simply enjoys the day. There are several other small, interesting trails to explore and reconnect with nature. Just follow the map and signs. Make sure you snap a pic by the Guard Shack and read its history. Inside the shack are some interesting feathers to smell. All trails are marked. We have several dogs that have a small fenced yard by the house, however, we keep the dogs inside when we have Sniffspot visitors. Occasionally, you might hear them bark when visiting, but generally, they are tucked away and occupied when we have Sniffspot guests. We are working on a few projects around the property, mostly on the house to include rebuilding the deck. You may occasionally see us up at the house working on one project or another, but we are respectful of your privacy. One side of our property adjoins with a U-Cut Christmas Tree farm, so there will be people and potentially other dogs there during the holiday season. If that is something you'd rather avoid, it's a simple left turn to miss all that while still enjoying the trails and field. Located atop Dixie Mountain, the drive up is filled with snatches of lovely views of the surrounding mountains and Portland (weather dependent). The view is especially gorgeous if you drive up from Highway 30. There certainly is a lot to do, see, and smell on Dixie Mountain! We hope you will come see us.

Born To Run Dog Park and Hiking Trails, 10 Acres, Litchfield, IL

Ten acres of scenic, secluded, fully fenced pasture and woods with full access to all hiking trails and half acre pond. Be prepared for a good workout with your dog as you explore all the ins and outs of this unique property. One tip we can give you is If you see a path leading somewhere, take it, you never know what you may find at the end of it. Also try to go up top on the hilly property in the beginning of your hike and work your way down to the lower parts as you do the hike. You can see the property and surrounding area better at the higher elevations and get a better feel on how the property is set up. We walk or jog at least five laps of the entire property with our seven australian shepherds every day so we are used to all the challenges the property presents but it will be interesting to see how normal people and dogs handle everything. If you or your dog are faint of heart or not in proper physical condition, we recommend that you reconsider doing the property. You may need more than one hour to go over the whole thing with your dog so bring a snack with you and enjoy it while sitting at the picnic table by the pond. All we ask is that you maintain the cleanliness of the property as it should be spotless with regard to animal waste and trash except for an occasional present from our thoroughbred horse. Also be safe in all that you and your dog do, navigating the property in its entirety can be a bit tricky at times, take proper precautions with tick preventatives for you and your dog, but most of all have some fun with your dog. Our private dog park and hiking trails are patterned after the famous Allerton Park open meadows and hiking trails in Monticello, IL,, which we must have run hundreds if not thousands of miles on while living and training there for marathons with our three aussies at the time. When we moved to Litchfield ten years ago, we wanted to keep experiencing those Allerton Park nature trails in our own backyard, we even have a butterfly alley at a certain time during the summer just like the famous one at Allerton Park and now we want to share all that with the people of Illinois and Missouri who may not get the chance to do that with their dog off leash the way public parks and trails are set up now. So enjoy and know that with our trusty 33 hp Kubota tractor, we put up every gate, fence post and inch of horse fencing on the property that you see and it is designed to keep all our animals in including very active dogs and livestock. There was nothing here when we first moved in except a few stretches of old rusty fencing which you may still see in some areas covered over by our new fencing. We wanted to keep it there as a reminder of what this property used to be and what we had to do to turn it in to what it is now. One more thing, if you have young puppies or rescue dogs that have never experienced being released off leash in an open area like this, bring them and try it, they will have a great time and they will learn so much and gain confidence in what they are capable of doing physically and mentally. Let them go off leash and just follow them around as they explore the property on their terms. You will see a side of them you never knew they had.

Canter Woods Farm FULLY FENCED in Vero Beach

Got a big, energetic dog who needs a lot of space to run? You’ve found it! If your dog is happiest in the water, we are here for you! We are a haven for dogs with Strong Opinions about things! 🤗 Doesn’t love people? Come on over! Hates other pets? That’s cool! Lives to chase squirrels and moles? We’re overrun, you do you! We are blessed with 19 gorgeous acres of ♿️ HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE pasture, ancient live oak hammocks, and trails surrounding 3 ponds and a creek leading to a cypress swamp. It’s Old Florida at its very BEST. Canter Woods is on the corner of two dead-end dirt roads with barely any traffic. We are now FULLY FENCED so your dog can safely work out every ounce of excess energy! Seating and picnic tables are provided throughout the property, and there is plenty of natural shade. We have a private road that runs all around the inside of the fence, so if your dog likes to run alongside you while you pedal, go ahead and bring your bicycle! The road/trail is almost completely shaded, so even on the hottest of days, it’s quite pleasant. One of our trails, which fully accommodates any vehicle, leads directly to our main seating area adjacent to not one but two ponds. Guests who use a wheelchair, crutches, or a walker can make it from their vehicle to a sturdy chair or lounger in just 6-8 feet ♿️ If you would like access to this parking spot, simply arrange with us. Our shallow swimming ponds are fed nonstop by a deep artesian well. We also have plenty of wildlife—depending on how rambunctious your dog might be, you may see otters, soft shelled turtles, tortoises, wood ducks, raccoons, armadillos, rabbits, and squirrels. We also have a plentiful supply of water birds—herons, egrets, and more. We are a Certified Wildlife Habitat™️! 🍃🌱🌿🪵🐇 We have horses on the premises in paddocks, and they’re tolerant of dogs and their mischief and love ♥️ our SniffSpot dog guests. Hopefully your dog is tolerant of these large mysterious creatures and doesn’t harass them! If you think your dog might be aggressive with the horses and get over or under their sturdy 4-foot paddock fence, please use a leash when in proximity of the barn and paddock! Do note that our horses are ridden and worked often, so there’s always the possibility that you will encounter “evidence” of a horse having passed there before you 😉 As we say around here, that’s farm life for ya! If that kind of thing bothers you, this probably isn’t the right spot for you. We are not manicured lawn—we are a farm and woods and a certified wildlife habitat. Note that we do have some predator animals such as hawks, owls, and the occasional bobcat, so this area is best suited for dogs over about 15 pounds. We keep our 4-lb chihuahua mostly inside, since we moved here. Parking is near the main entrance gate, close to the barn, and you are invited to start off your visit on the trails, following Bambi’s Run at the main entrance. Poop bags, maps, and a trash can are located on a pine tree at the parking area and near the horse paddock. ✨ PLEASE NOTE: We are specifically requesting that you do NOT come to our farm to “check us out” WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT. Please respect that Canter Woods is also our home, and we are closed to anyone who doesn’t have an appointment. For our security and the safety of our guests and their dogs, we have surveillance cameras in use at all our entrances. MEMBERS-ONLY HOURS: We reserve before-work 7:30-10:30 am, Saturday mornings until noon, and all day on Sundays for dog lovers who have chosen to be members. Members also get a lower rate that’s never subject to a price increase + free use of our wash rack and dog shampoo! (a big bonus for the big dogs in our lives!) WE ARE CLOSED ON TUESDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS 🦋

Great amazing space! Took the pack over the holiday and they had a blast! Was a bit overwhelming for me though! We took our dogs and their bro and sis. I didn't realize how big the space was and it was a challenge to keep an eye on 5 dogs! Thanks for a great experience, the goats and chickens where a great addition.

Leomar’s yard is very big. Marvel had a great time again. A lot of running and sniffing. Came back home exhausted. I had some exercise too, walking up and down the hill.😄

Frequently asked questions about Sniffspot dog park hiking trails listings

Are dog hiking trails safe?

The answer to this question depends greatly on the specific rules and culture of each individual dog-friendly hiking trail. On crowded popular trails where off-leash dogs regularly greet one another, it can be difficult to ensure all interactions are positive. Uncertain dogs are easily overwhelmed by quick approaches from strangers — if the dog-friendly trail is narrow without adequate space to flee, these canine companions can quickly feel trapped or resort to the “fight” option of fight-or-flight reactions. After a few stressful experiences, previously shy dogs can lose trust in their owners and even become fear aggressive.

Sniffspot takes these risks seriously. That's why all of our private dog park listings, including hiking trail systems, are carefully booked to make sure there's ample time between arrivals and departures — and you can filter listings by whether or not your dog is likely to see any other animals at all, even from afar! Plus all Sniffspot locations are vetted and reviewed by guests so you can find the perfect place for you and your dog based on firsthand experiences from fellow nature lovers. 93% of reviews on Sniffspot visits are 5 stars. And our hiking trails tend to be outside the city, which lends to more privacy on your trail adventures. (Note that it is still important to follow typical hiking safety precautions, such as potentially having trail maps downloaded ahead of time.)

How can I find dog hiking trails near me?

You can browse all of our dog hiking trails above, at the top of this page. View them on a map to find a quick escape or apply filters if you're looking for something specific!

How do I know if a dog hiking trail works for my dog?

Sniffspot provides tools to find the ideal dog-friendly trails for you and your furry friend. Start by applying basic filters like whether a spot has fencing or if certain distractions (like other dogs, wildlife, or loud noises) are present. If your dog doesn't have a good recall yet? You can visit one of our fully fenced dog hiking trails or opt for a less expansive off-leash dog park. If your dog is reactive to other dogs? You can visit one of our dog hiking trails where there are no dogs audible or visible nearby.

You can also filter by size if you are looking for a certain number of miles of trails or have a minimum acre park in mind.

We provide resources to check elevation and hike intensity, too! Make sure to check photos to see if the spot has flat trails or gnarly trails. You can also browse by specific amenities, if you are looking for a view or a beach, for instance, or other activities or fun features. You can check whether the spot has off or on street parking, the regular park hours, whether it has paved trails or a modern restroom.

What are the requirements to bring my dog to a Sniffspot dog hiking trail?

To hike a Sniffspot trail, we require that all dogs have basic vaccinations or equivalent titers. It's a good idea to keep your pet's vaccination records up to date. We do not permit private dog park use by pregnant dogs or pets with a bite history — and we require that pet parent guests sign our waiver and agree to follow our safety rules before bringing their furry friend to a Sniffspot dog park or dog-walking trail, such as staying within the designated off-leash area.

Each park location also has their own set of rules that guests need to follow, such as limiting excessive barking and otherwise ensuring respectful canine behavior.

Will there be other dogs at the Sniffspot hiking trail at the same time as me?

No, there will not. Your rental is private, not a public dog park! You will have your reserved Sniffspot all to yourself: a safe environment just for you and your furry friend to enjoy.

Sniffspot only allows one booking at a time. Any host dogs are required to be kept away from the spot during visits. We also enforce 30 minute time buffers between bookings to make sure you don't run into any surprises.

How much do Sniffspot hiking trails cost?

Each host sets their own price, so you can check the price on the specific Sniffspot dog park listing. Most are between $5 - $15 per dog per hour for a popular dog park hiking trail, depending on terrain and amenities.
