Doggin' Long Island: The 30 Best Places To Hike With Your Dog In New York's Playground (Paperback)
Long Island can be a great place to hike with your dog. Within a short drive your canine adventurer can be climbing seaside dunes that leave him panting, trotting in rolling pinelands, exploring the estates of America's wealthiest families or circling lakes for miles and never lose sight of the water. Doggin' Long Island selects the 30 best places to take your dog for an outing and ranks them according to such criteria as the variety of hikes available, opportunities for canine swimming and pleasure of the walks. The rankings include a mix of parks that feature long walks and parks that contain short walks. Doggin' Long Island tells you the parks that don't welcome dogs. Also packed inside these 116 pages are...21 great Long Island beaches to take your dog...outifitting your dog for a hike...dog-friendly campgrounds...tips on practicing low impact hiking with your dog...and much more.
