Local canine trainers Brooke O'Brien and Sophia Kingsbury from Adventure Canine Training share their favorite local hikes to be able to experience the great outdoors with a four-legged best friend.
Bledsoe Creek State Park
A natural, wooded paradise located less than 10 minutes away from the downtown Gallatin, this 2.8 mile loop is perfect for a leisurely stroll, trail hike or nature walk with your dog. The trail is well-cared for with sprawling views of the water and plenty of nature and wildlife all around.
Triple Creek Dog Park
Gallatin's largest park has plenty of paved walking trails and grassy areas to let your pup explore. It also boasts a dedicated, off-leash dog park where pups can mingle, roam and play with others.
If your exploration takes you into Nashville, Centennial Park has immense green space for trailblazing and exploring, as well as an off-leash dog play area. Don't forget to check out the Parthenon while you're there!
