    Not worth it

    Disappointing to travel all the way here to find out that you can only take your dog on one measley trail, I planned on hiking sugarbush and after pulling up the sign says no dogs, the only option is goldenrod trail. The website says nothing about animals being prohibited on any of the trail info page, in order to find out which one we could go on, I had to go back to the home page scroll to the bottom and click on “Pets” but it doesn’t appear to be a hyperlink, (but it is) I found it out of spite. This is a beautiful park but don’t bother going if you’re taking your dog😢. The goldenrod trail is simply to easy, no ups or downs, wet even when it should be dry, it’s basically open fields that they’ve mowed on the outskirts, no cover, my dog was overheating. This park has such great potential, but sadly falls very short for dog lovers

    Ticks

    I visited here with my dog and not only is there just one trail for dogs, but I found a tick crawling all over my leg when I was checking out the trail map! Will not be back with my dog.

    Not Intended for Dogs

    There was only ONE dog path and somewhere around 6 trails for people only (signs say no dogs allowed). The dog path is extremely easy, boring and only a mile long. Not what I expected when I brought my dog here. Such a short and disappointing trip for us.

    Hardly worth a visit.

    Same experience: too short and too wet. Seems to be a common theme in some other Columbus metro parks as well. Pick a spot that is not scenic and flooded and cut a path for the dogs (curious how their equipment doesn't get stuck). I suspect one of the reasons the nature trails (which are awesome) in the park are off limits to dogs is because some owners refuse to clean up after their pets.

    too short

    The dog-friendly loop is only 1.2 miles and a portion of it was so muddy we couldn't even walk through it.
