Visiting the Lodge
We would love to see you! A great time to join us is during an introductory hikes as we set this time aside to attend to our humans canine visitors. Please be sure to book an appointment as we do not offer these hikes every weekend.  Send us an email and we will add you to the guest list.

Last but not least, for weekly hikers, please be sure to leave a towel by the door so that we can wipe your dog’s paws.
