South Mountain Reservation

South Mountain Reservation in West Orange, NJ is dog-friendly. This nature reserve coverers 2,112 acres in portions of Maplewood, Millburn and West Orange. The woodland park features a variety of hardwood trees, and tall hemlocks towering above streams, creeks and ponds. The west branch of the Rahway River flows through the valley, and a 25-foot waterfall at Hemlock Falls is a dramatic feature. It is also a Revolutionary War historic site. Leashed dogs are welcome on trails and the South Mountain Dog Park is located within the Reservation. Visit Website

    Rustic with pools & water

    Loved it! Big and had a nice woods feel. Several pools that folks constantly empty (dirty water) and refill with clean water. A nice big fenced “time out” area but we didn’t see any dogs in it-not needed since dogs were good. My 8 month old puppy really enjoyed all the play options and then we hiked to the waterfall. Beautiful park.
