Bryan Park Starter Hike - Beginner $5 hike

Haven't been to Bryan Park lately? Then this is your lucky hike day! Let's get together and hike the beautiful park together- this park has made a wonderful comeback in the last 8 years and is worth the visit. There are nice, clean trails and a mix of road. We will hike Jordan's Branch trail and make a water stop so the pups can cool off!

There are over 260 acres in this park, but we will only cover about 2 miles. Obviously, we will be back for some more exploration! 

Enter the park through the main entrance, stay straight down the hill. At the bottom, go left across the stone bridge and up the hill. Continue straight, staying to the right. Soccer fields and children's playground will be on your left, turn right into the first parking lot. You will see a shelter diagonal to the parking lot. I have a black SUV with the back hatch up, Weston will be hanging out the back too.

This will be an on-leash hike. As always, wear good shoes and be alert. Your dog will thank you! If you have questions, post to the MeetUp wall. If you think you may get lost trying to find the location, email me and I will send you my phone number.

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!

Weston and I look forward to seeing you Saturday!

    I had been to Bryan Park many times before, but never on those trails!!! It was so refreshing. And I loved the water breaks...and to say that Kyla loved them is putting it mildly! Thanks Janice! And to everyone else....so nice to see you all as well! :)

    Kyla, Alex, Pepper, Moose, Cornelius, Dolly, Drake, Nellie, Walter, Hope, South City, Beau and Weston enjoyed the sunshine before the snow today! Virginia was showing its spring side as we hiked the trails at Bryan Park and took in multiple water stops to stay cool. Thank you everyone for coming out today! See you on your next hike!

    Hi everyone! I am so sorry for the late notice, but I just found out that I am recieving an award tomorrow at noon at the Richmond SPCA. They were trying to keep it a secret but when they found out I was leaving early, they told me. I am going to have to push our hike back an hour. Our hike will now be from 1:30-2:30 p.m. I really hope you all can still come, but if you can't, I will refund your money.
