Best of the Best in the Poconos

Read the first 32 pages 

Have you ever considered how far you walk with your dog? If you walk just 15 minutes a day you will have walked far enough in your dog's lifetime to cross the United States. With all that walking ahead of you, aren't you ready for a new place to take a hike?

This new book seeks to help you flush out those great hiking spots for your dog. DOGGIN' THE POCONOS: THE 33 BEST PLACES TO HIKE WITH YOUR DOG IN PENNSYLVANIA'S NORTHEAST MOUNTAINS explores the area's top trails with your best friend in mind...

  • Where can your dog hike around a glacial pond? (page 19)
  • Where can your dog hike through the largest unlumbered forest left in northeast Pennsylvania? (page 37)
  • Where can you hike with your dog hike on the roadbed of one of America's oldest railroads? (page 42)
  • Where can you hike with your dog down the concrete way of Old Route 611 heading into Philadelphia? (page 53)

No Dogs!

Is there any more dispiriting day for a dog owner than driving to a new park and encountering the dreaded "NO DOGS" sign? DOGGIN' THE POCONOS tells you the parks that don't welcome dogs. Also packed inside these 92 pages are...
...regulations for dogs in Pocono campgrounds
...tips on outfitting your dog for a hike
...tips on practicing low impact hiking with your dog
...and much more.

The Poconos are a great place to hike with your dog. Within a short drive you can be scaling mountains that leave your dog panting, exploring impossibly green glens that will set tails to wagging or circling lakes for miles where swim-loving dogs never sight of the water. While walking the dog, author Doug Gelbert also brings along generous helpings of local history, botany, geology, architecture and more.

What makes a great place to take your dog hiking?

Well, how about a paw-friendly surface to trot on? Grass and sandy dirt are a lot more appealing than asphalt and rocks. A variety of hikes is always good - long ones for athletic dogs and short ones for the less adventurous canine. Dogs always enjoy a refreshing place to swim as well. For tail-friendly parks our guides describe the trail options for your dog, evaluate park traffic from other users, tell you whether you will need a guide dog to find your way around and, of course, tell you how to get to the park.

So what are you waiting for? Your dog will want to hunt the elusive morel mushroom (page 73), hike through the Ecology Cemetery (page 25), hike across a National Natural Landmark (page 23)...
