PLAY – While you’re here you won’t want to miss the op-paw-tunity to get out and play! Connect with nature on the 5 miles of trails at Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park. Your leashed dog can explore the rocky shoreline, the piney woods, or grab a nice snooze in the shade under your picnic table. At  Bradbury Mountain State Park & Campground take a short hike for the great view from the summit, or spend the day roaming the miles of trails. Is your dog hounding you for more?  Freeport Conservation Trust can connect you with 1,500 acres of open space and nearly 20 miles of public trails!
