The purpose of this group is to provide dog lovers the opportunity to hike with other dog lovers and their dogs on trails in public parks in NJ.


Explore and enjoy the outdoors, and make new, local friends, human and canine!

Our main activity will be hiking throughout Somerset and Morris Counties with some hikes in Huntington, Warren and Sussex Counties. This is a laid back group with easy going outings.

All walks are free. All breeds of dogs are welcome. Leashes required. Social dogs only. (No aggressive dogs.) Dogs must have up to date rabies and distemper vaccinations. The safety and care of the animals and their owners cannot be guaranteed but a spay/neuter requirement will reduce the likelihood of any unwanted issues. All dogs must be spayed/neutered

Dogs must be under the owners control at all times and be handled in compliance with all park, state and local laws & regulations. Owners are 100% responsible for their dogs care and behavior and for complying with all regulations governing all meet-up venues. Hiking is always at your own risk.

You are responsible for understanding and following all laws within the park including leash laws. You accept responsibility for the safety of yourself, your pets and any guests and their pets you invite from outside the group. Attending our hikes signifies you understand the physical challenges and agree that you, your pet and any guests and their pets are physically capable and that you will be responsible for your own and their safety.

Our pace is generally about 2 miles per hour.  Some trails are hilly, some have steep slopes, some have very rocky terrain and some have difficult stream crossings. And some have various combinations of these conditions.  Do not attend, if you are not physically ready for these conditions.

Children under 12 years of age are not allowed.

Please be advised that the Organizer/Co-Organizer reserve the right to remove any members who do not abide by these or any other policies.

The courtesy of keeping your RSVP current is expected.  3 "No Shows" will result in pack membership termination.  Cancelling an RSVP after the RSVP cut-off time will be treated as a "No Show".  We don't want to lose anyone so just be considerate to the other packmembers hanging around waiting for you, for naught.

No solicitations please. This website is for organizing meet-ups only.
