the newest entrance to Piedmont Park
So naturally, Rocco and I headed off to check out the newest acreage, complete with wooded trails and bridges and paved paths, perfect for all sorts of outdoor adventures! Rocco's Havanese pal Nicky's been staying with us this past week, so Nicky got to come along for the adventure too.
After crossing over the bridge into the park, Rocco and Nicky discovered some new steps up to a wooded trail...
So peaceful, it's hard to believe these trails are right in the middle of Atlanta just a few miles from downtown!
Even though there was lots of shade, remember that dogs can overheat quickly...
|Rocco and his pal Nicky take a moment for water break and a rest stop in the shade|
- Don't over do it. Take rest stops in the shade often.
- Bring along plenty of fresh water
- Start your walk in the early morning or in the evening during the coolest hours of the day
We used the new Instagram video feature to record this video. You can also watch it on Instagram here!
Piedmont Park has come a long way in the last five or so years, and this was just the latest phase in its grand restoration plan. All in all we covered about four miles, a terrific walk to kick off a FitDog Friday!
