Hiking #TailsonTrails at Red Top Mountain and Fido's #FreebieFriday

Hiking #tailsontrails with #GaStateParks at Red Top Mountain

We recently got started on the Tails and Trails challenge, a program started this June by Georgia State Parks. The idea is to hike with your dog at seven Georgia State Parks.

The designated trails that are part of the program are easy enough for any hiker or dog to enjoy -- ranging from one to five miles. But what's nice is there are plenty of trails to choose from at all of these parks, so you can take it easy or go for a bigger challenge.

On our first Tails on Trails hike we headed to Red Top Mountain, a place we've hiked before. So this time we hit a trail that's new to us, the 5.5-mile Homestead Trail. This trail is rated moderate and on a hot day it was plenty challenging. One of the nicest parts about the trail is that it follows the lakeshore of Lake Allatoona for about half its length. Rocco and Codie took full advantage of the lake, while Bingo watched the wet boys from her dry spot!

We'll be doing another one of the Tails on Trails hikes soon, and we hope to do them all. We love the idea of this program to encourage more folks to get out and get active with their pups!

  3. Making the puppy involved in adventure is so interesting for the dog owner to watch. The FreebieFriday is really a good show that gives chance to our skilled dogs to show their talent. The stages are quite exciting and I wish my puppy could take part in it. Well, he is too small now for such competitions but after few years he would definitely take part in FreebieFriday. Anyways, now I'm busy in taking a good care of him and make him stronger. Best Vet chatsworth is with me and they are taking the best care of him. Interesting post!
