  • Sep 23, 2015 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

You are invited to Hike with dogs in Rockwood Park.  Feel free to come even if you don't have a dog. We will walk about 1 - 1/2 hours (3.5 - 4 miles).

As an option, we will gather at the pet friendly patio at Panera Bread on Courthouse Road and Midlothian Turnpike after the hike.

Please note: Rockwood Park is dog friendly as long as the animal is on a leash. The fine for noncompliance is $250.  (Rockwood has a dog park within the park called Ruff House Dog Park. Dogs are allowed to be off leash only in this area.)

The park is easily reach by way of the Powhite Parkway. Take the Courthouse Road exit head towards Hull Street. Rockwood Park will be on your left hand side before you get to Hull Street.

Meeting Location: After you come into Rockwood Park from the Courthouse Road entrance, make your first right, follow the road around the basketball courts and pass the children's park on the left.  The next parking lot will be Ruffhouse Dog parking lot. Park there.  Look for a white SUV with an orange kayak on top.
