    Love this place.

    A good amount of trails within Hashawha’s property, and backs right up to the union Mills trails. All together making more than 10 miles to hike. My dog loves to explore the property and play in the creek that runs through. Saw on another review they said “draw back is no poo station” and I agree, there’s not station with bags or trash cans, I have my own, but it would be nice to not have to worry if I ran out. Love it anyway!

    Great for hiking families with any sized dogs.

    My first trip to this huge center (380) acres worth of park like setting.

    We encountered many dog lovers like us who like to enjoy the day wandering away in its private trails.
    Very peaceful walks since the land is quite stretched out & the trails are pretty decent.

    Not to mention, kid friendly too. Plus educational.

    One draw back... no doggie poo station (for disposal)... unless I missed it somehow since I am new????
