Promoting safe, responsible canine hiking in Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia and the District of Columbia! For anyone who enjoys hiking with dogs! The DC metro area is a great place to explore, we'll hike trails in VA, MD, WV & DC. There's something here for every activity and fitness level. Most of our events are day hikes, but we'll have some over-nighters thrown in there too for the dog and owner who enjoy camping or backpacking. We'll also have both on leash and off leash hikes to satisfy different puppy needs! We welcome new members to surf our site, check out our calendar or browse our dog hiking tips found under the About link to the left; we hope you enjoy. And to our regular members, we'd like to extend our warmest thanks and appreciation to you for your support and friendship! Let's get out there and make a good impression as responsible K-9 owners and show the Northern Virginia and Washington Metropolitan area what it means to be 'trail dogs'!
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
