    Perfect for our doggo!

    Dogs are allowed in the front country area. We walked the Savannah loop — pretty flat & easy to walk. They have dog waste stations through out the trail as well. Perfect for what we wanted.

    Great but limited

    There is extensive hiking in the front country. But dogs are not allowed in the back country. The front country is beautiful and flat. The back country has considerable rocky terrain.
