Southeastern Pennsylvania, northern Delaware and South Jersey can be fantastic places to hike with your dog.

Also included are Atlantic beach regulations for dogs...outfitting your dog for a hike...low impact hiking with your dog...parks that do not allow dogs...and much more.
DOGGIN' PHILADELPHIA: THE 50 BEST PLACES TO HIKE WITH YOUR DOG IN THE DELAWARE VALLEY is whimsically illustrated with original drawings by award-winning artist Andrew Chesworth.
What makes a great place to take your dog hiking? Well, how about a paw-friendly surface to trot on? Grass and sandy dirt are alot more appealing than asphalt and rocks. A variety of hikes is always good - long ones for athletic dogs and short ones for the less adventurous canine. Dogs always enjoy a refreshing place to swim as well. Our guides focus on the parks that are good choices to take your dog. We'll tell you the ones dog owners needn't bother with and feature the places that welcome your dog.
For dog-friendly parks we describe the trail options for your dog, evaluate park traffic from other users, tell you whether you will need a guide dog to find your way around and, of course, tell you how to get to the park.
So what are you waiting for? Your dog will want to hike through one of North America's only three serpentine barrens? (page 48), trot past the exact base point for the Mason-Dixon Line? (page 101), climb on a wooden reproduction of a rare Fink Truss bridge? (page 82)...
