    We just picked up this book on Sunday and I really find it very informative!

    I'm not sure if there are similar books for other states/territories, but if there are I would highly recommend picking one up. Not only does it tell you what to expect at every inch of the trails, it gives a couple great checklists for you and your dog. There's also a really nice section on doggy first aid, and how to handle anything that might come up when you're on the trail. We'll be taking a VERY short hike (not even a mile... which is what our neighborhood walk is) this weekend to a lighthouse on a nearby island - SO excited to test out the bigger trails when Keiko grows up a bit!

    **Found a link to other areas!

  • That looks like a great book - very helpful! I wish they made one for our area.

    For hiking with dogs I recommend these books too:

    Dogs on the Trail

    Backpacking With Your Dog

  • Nice find! I've been looking for something like this for the Atlanta area and haven't been able to find it. Now I did!

    Some more here on the publisher's site.
  • Thats cool, Kaddy! Thanks for the link! I might buy the CO one!

    Hmm. Wish they had a Virginia/West Virginia one. Yet another reason to head out west! :)
