    This trail is amazing!! Highly recommend to anyone who loves hiking. The trail is well maintained and beautiful.

    We had a great day at this SniffSpot and will be back! Our dogs loved swimming in the creek, romping through the woods, and getting muddy. (The provided towels definitely came in handy!) This was a great, private trail away from the road.

    This was our first sniff spot and it was awesome! We walked the trail loop 3 times, one of the times my dog Zola took a little romp in the creek and loved it so much it gave her the zoomies! One our way back to the car we stopped to watch the farm animals from a distance. It was the first time she saw a pig and she was definitely fascinated by it. We can’t wait to visit again!

    Host replied: I'm so glad you guys enjoyed it! The pig is named Kevin Bacon, and he loves watching the doggies come by. Thanks for visiting, and big thanks for keeping your dog leashed until on the trails. 😊🐶

    We love it here so much! We usually walk the loop about 3 times and it fills up the hour when its too cold to swim. Thanks for having us as always :-)

    Host replied: Thanks for visiting again and love to hear you guys enjoy it! 😊🐶

    We arrived a bit late as I am new to the area, also first time using Sniffspot. The parking directions are great. I appreciated the sign and the space. Ina was thrilled to be at a new area. At first she wasn't sure what her role would be working or fun or training. I kept charge of the leash until we passed the farm residents. After I dropped the leash to let her explore. This was great she sniffed up a storm a lot to take in. Truly all that was listed was wonderfully provided Emily had thought of and provided it. Of course Ina found a left over tennis ball so she carried it onward then at the top of the loop where the bridge is, she headed for the water. Where she took a refreshing stroll and then a dip in the middle to cool herself. Luckily I packed towels as I didn't wish to leave muddy laundry for Emily. We did one loop about 45 minutes, stayed on the path which was wide and nicely maintained. I'm thinking I would book it longer the next time letting her do it twice or play a bit of ball with her as we are walking. Terrific property Thank you for sharing and a very pleasant experience. We hope to return when we come through again. I felt fortunate that there happened to be some time available on way less that a days notice!! Thank you so much Emily! Cheryle and Ina

    Callie and Clementine had an absolute blast. The property was great for exploring and playing in the water! We will definitely be back!

    Host replied: Looks at those muddy pups! I love it! Thank you, guys, for stopping by. I can't wait to see you out there in the future. 😊🐶

    Our dogs loved the hike through the woods and playing in the creek. Although we did not need them the towels are so thoughtful and helpful as well as the the bottled water in the event you forget your own. We will for sure visit again, Thank you!

    Host replied: Love to hear that you and the pups enjoyed it! Thank you! 😊🐶

  • Kristina T., Feb 15, 2023

    We always have an amazing time here. But what made this visit so special was how accommodating Emily was to my pups special needs. I had messaged to ask if I could bring a stroller for my senior pup who has trouble walking. Right away her response was of course I could bring it. If you come here, your coming to not only a beautiful place. But a place where animals are loved & welcomed. Can’t wait to bring my boys back again. If I could give 100 stars I would!

    Host replied: Thank you so much! I'm so glad the pups enjoy being here! 😊🐶

  • Amber B., Feb 12, 2023
