Places where you won't be able to wipe the wag off your dog's tail...

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 with your dog?

Atlanta can be a great place to hike with your dog. Within a short drive your canine adventurer can be climbing forested mountainsides that leave him panting, trotting in impossibly green ravines, exploring some of America's most historic grounds or circling lakes for miles and never lose sight of the water. DOGGIN' ATLANTA explores the region's top trails with your best friend in mind...

Where can your dog hike to the site of the discovery of gold in Georgia? (page 64)
Where can your dog hike to the ruins of the tallest building in antebellum Atlanta? (page 19)
Where can your dog hike to the top of the tallest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River? (page 37)


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' ATLANTA tells you the parks that don't welcome dogs. Also packed inside these 118 pages are...
...trail hazards
...tips on outfitting your dog for a hike
...tips on practicing low impact hiking with your dog
...and much more

What makes a great place to take your dog hiking? Well, how about a paw-friendly surface to trot on? Grass and sandy soil 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 dog-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.

While walking the dog around Atlanta, we bring along generous helpings of local history, botany, geology, architecture and more. So what are you waiting for? Your dog will want to hike to the site of Georgia's first paper mill (page 100), hike to see the Georgia State Champion Virginia pine tree (page 47), hike to the roof of Georgia (page 78), trot across one of only ten suspension bridges in the state of Georgia (page 95)...
