Synopsis

Have you ever considered how far you walk with your dog? If you walk just 20 minutes a day, in ten years you will have walked far enough to cross the United States. With all that walking ahead of you and your dog, arenÕt you ready for a new place to hike?

Our new book, available now, A Bark In The Park: The 48 Best Places To Hike With Your Dog In The Black Hills rates the best dog-walking destinations with your best friend in mind. How's the trail surface? Any water out there? What hazards are waiting for dogs on the trails?

DonÕt own a dog? Author Lucinda Schuft brings along enough local lore, botany, geology and architecture in this lively guide to entertain two-legged hikers as well.

The Black Hills region can be a great place to hike with your dog. Within a short driving distance you can hike on leafy trails, climb mountains that leave you and your dog panting, walk through some of the most historic forests in America, and even find a place to go for a swim.
