Franklin Lakes Nature Preserve

Two trials, very open area. Your dog will love it. Friendly people and friendly dogs when you see them. Shoreline Loop 1.5 miles which is intersected by Island Bridges making the loop about 1 mile. Your puppy may take issue with the bridges but with gentle encouragement and patience they can be crossed. Visit Website

    Jeter and I visit this preserve often. No one I have seen put their pup on a leash, but there is a sign. There are streams that have to be crossed some have real bridges others have stepping stones. Jeter has a problem crossing bridges while I have a problem crossing shaky stones in a stream that are supposed to be a bridge. We got through it. Very friendly people and dogs. Bring water, there is none and no human bathrooms. If you turn before the bridges your walk will be shorter but drama free. During the winter Jeter walked across the frozen lake on Island Bridges. My heart was in my throat until he crossed. So if you have a Jeter put leash on prior to cross bridges or your pup may call an audible like mine did.
