Sunday Trails and Lakes Hike!

Richmond is currently experiencing some beautiful weather, so let's take advantage before the snow creeps back in next week!  It supposed to rain Friday, so we will take in just a few trails to avoid any muddy terrains. We will meet at Dogwood Dell and hike the trails first weaving our way down to the pumphouse. From the back road, we will enter the pumphouse gates and take the trail around the canal and visit a spot that George Washington once stood! 

We will then head to the back of Maymont and jump on the Northbank trail. We will take the road to the lakes and enjoy the beautiful scenery as we stroll through. After quality lake time, we will head back to Dogwood Dell.

The hike will be about 4 miles and dogs will be on-leash. All dogs welcome! Questions? Email me through Meetup or post your question in the comments.

We are thrilled that folks are enthusiastic about joining us on our hikes! Please understand that we can only accommodate a certain number of folks and pups on a given hike. Our group sizes are limited to ensure that we can effectively manage each group. You are welcome to RSVP with a guest (or two), but if the hike is filled up, please respect our limitations. There are more hikes on the way, you won't be left out!

    I have no clue where to go. No one seems to know where dog park is. Help

    • Janice A.

      I am so sorry Jennifer that you didn't find us. The dog park is right by the Carillion and Maymont Park. I will give you my phone number next time. I will refund your hike money.

    Ella, Winston, Hope, Maggie, Austin, Sadie, Hazel, Moose, Hannah, Willow, Noro, Sadie, Willow (2), South City, and Weston had a great time exploring the trails of Dogwood Dell! We made extra water stops because it warmed up more than we expected but we did make it to the lakes and got to see the geese before heading back to the car. Thank you all for coming and see you on your next hike!'

    Hi Janice, I was in the middle of paying with my Paypal to attend today(couldn't remember my password) I went back to finish the transaction and now it's full. Is the walk really full and did I get a spot? I can't figure out what happened :-(

    February 22, 2014

    • Janice A.

      Hi Paige! Can you call me after 2:00 today? Or tomorrow morning after 10? We will get you registered- plan on coming. My number is[masked]-5379. Thanks!

      February 22, 2014

    • Paige

      Hi again, I now have other plans tomorrow. I appreciate you trying to help me out though! Than you!!

      February 22, 2014

  • Lynn P.

    Will this be a fast walk or a Simi slow? Just wondering I'd I need to bring water for moose.

    • Lynn P.

      Thanks for getting back with me! Could you al as o tell me what pace it will be? My dog is natually slow, especially in the warmer weather. I worry about slowing everyone down.

      February 21, 2014

    • Janice A.

      Sorry Lynn, I missed that part of the question! Tomorrow's pace will be about a 21-23 minutes mile. Does this help? We aren't going to be fast on the trails, we take it easy and make sure everyone sticks together. We aren't in a rush tomorrow, I really want to enjoy the sunshine and being outside. The trails will be first and then the flat area will be the second part of the hike.
