A native of Texas, Melissa Gaskill has spent more than 20 years hiking and camping with her dogs all over the Lonestar State. In this guidebook, she shares her favorite hikes in the Hill Country and Coast areas that are sure to delight both you and your dog. The trails in range from short jaunts to longer, challenging hikes. Discover everything from rugged hills with limestone cliffs and rolling terrain, to wide-open areas with brush and cactus, to the coastal plain with its grasslands and pine forests.

For each hike, leash regulations and availability of water are noted, along with any trail concerns pertinent for your dog. Advice is given on topics such as proper canine trail etiquette, wildlife encounters, and weather concerns. There's also a handy Trail Finder chart that lists hikes by length, terrain, difficulty for dogs, and more.
