Pet Friendly Natural Lands Trust's Willisbrook Preserve in Malvern, PA
The 126-acre Willisbrook Preserve includes more than 20 acres of the Sugartown Serpentine Barrens, a rare ecosystem. These barrens support a diverse variety of plants, including serpentine aster, round-leafed fame flower, and warm-season grasses. The preserve, which was donated to Natural Lands Trust in 1961, holds special significance as the first property that we received through donation. In 2010, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (PA DCNR) designated portions of Willisbrook Preserve—specifically the Sugartown Serpentine Barrens—as a “Pennsylvania Wild Plant Sanctuary.” The program encourages the conservation of natural areas and native plants, and recognizes private landowners who serve as models of good conservation and stewardship of these special resources. Dogs are welcome as long as their humans keep them on leash at all times and pick up after them. Natural Lands Trust is the greater Philadelphia region's oldest and largest land conservation organization and is dedicated to protecting the forests, fields, streams, and wetlands that are essential to the sustainability of life in eastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey. Since its founding in 1953, Natural Lands Trust has preserved more than 100,000 acres, including 42 nature preserves totaling more than 22,000 acres. Today, millions of residents enjoy the healthy habitats, clean air and water, bountiful recreational opportunities, and scenic beauty provided by the lands the organization has preserved.

Pet Friendly Pawlings Farm in King of Prussia, PA
Pawlings Farm is a neat little trail area that is part of the Valley Forge National Historic Park in Pennsylvania. With many different trails spanning through the area, Valley Forge is a great place to walk with Fido. In Particular, the Pawlings Farm trails border parallel to the Schuykill River Trail (which also is in the National Park in this instance) and can lead to several other trailheads. Crowds may vary by time of year and day, but personal experience has shown that it is generally a light load, making it an ideal walking area for pups that don't like large crowds. There's plenty of woods, so bring some bug spray for both you and your furry buddy. Be careful, as there are some instances of Poison Ivy a few feet from the trails, as the park rangers only maintain the areas immediately affecting the trails themselves and are not responsible for anything happening outside of designated walking trails. The trail heads from Pawling's Farm often have deer in the area, as well as many other sorts of forest wildlife. If your dog tends to chase the wildlife, keep them on a leash to keep from a wild pup chase.
