Hiking is fun, but hiking with your best friend is even better! Metro Parks has over 100 miles of pet trails throughout the district, including Greenway Trails. The longer, 3.5-mile Coyote Run Trail at Highbanks goes around the Adena mounds and through prairies, while the short, 0.5-mile Evergreen Trail at Three Creeks wraps around the wooded natural play area. All of the trails at Scioto Grove and Quarry Trails Metro Parks are pet friendly.
There’s a trail for everyone and their pets at all 20 Metro Parks. And yes, even leashed, domestic cats are allowed on the trails! Pets must be on a leash at all times while on the trails and owners must clean up any pet waste and dispose of it in the proper facilities.
