For anyone in the SouthCoast and beyond looking for a great place to take their dog to enjoy beautiful hiking trails, Borderland State Park is where it’s at.
This past Saturday, we drove up to Easton and spent 2 hours hiking around scenic Borderland. Gracie had her nose to the ground sniffing the entire time.
We even found "split rock"!
Borderland State Park has an interesting history. In 1906, Oakes Ames, a Harvard botanist, and his wife Blanche, an artist, purchased land on the border of Sharon and Easton. The country estate they named “Borderland” remained in the family for sixty-five years. In 1971, two years after the death of Blanche Ames, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts acquired the estate and opened it as a state park.
Borderland has something for everyone; walking, hiking and horseback riding on woodland trails, fishing and canoeing in the ponds, or, in winter, ice-skating and sledding. For a trail map, click here...
Borderland even has its very own doggie water bubbler!
We encountered many dog owners and their dogs during our hike, along with some horses too!
Gracie highly recommends Borderland State Park; it has definitely made it into her top 10 list of fun dog friendly places to visit in the area!
So take some time out of your busy weekend schedule and make the journey over to Borderland. You and your dog will love it, Gracie and I guarantee it!
