Dog running on trail with backpack on



Can you feel it? Fall is in the air! The end of summer and early fall is the perfect time of year to get out there, breathe in the fresh air, and explore the great outdoors. The Slate is here to recommend a few places to take doggo for an adventure around Savannah.

Savannah-Ogeechee Canal

Looking for the trail less traveled? The Savannah-Ogeechee Canal is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for good reason! Constructed in the 1800s to connect the Savannah and Ogeechee rivers, this storied canal offers 6 miles of peaceful rural roads and unpaved trails along the historic towpath. The trail is easy – but you may want to wear your hiking boots.

Skidaway Island State Park

Why settle for one trail when you can trek four? The trails through Skidaway Island State Park give you plenty of ground to cover, with paths that weave through pristine salt marshes and a gorgeous forest filled with Spanish moss-draped live oaks, leading to a boardwalk and observation tower. There’s lots of wildlife to enjoy as well, so be sure your dog can handle all the excitement!

Tom Triplett Park

Located in Pooler, less than 8 miles from home, Tom Triplett Park has it all. The park’s 6-mile trail surrounds a picturesque lake filled with lots of cool creatures. After your hike, you and your pup can chill at the picnic pavilion, throw a line from the fishing pier, or head to the 18-hole disc golf course and train your furry friend to be your oh-so-adorable caddy.
