Dog Friendly Hikes in the South West

Below is a guide to the hiking trails in the South West that you can take your furry children to for a fun day out. As I visit more trails I will be adding to this list so there are a few more to come. 

 

Click on the trail name or photos to find out more information on each trail including where to find them, maps and hiking grade.

 

As always please make sure you are a responsible dog owner and adhere to the Leave No Trace principles when out on the trails.
