Bartlett's Best Hiking Trails
for You and Your Dog!
Looking for a place that offers fresh air, scenic views, and exercise for both you and your best fur friend? Stamford's Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens is one of the few spots in Stamford that satisfy all of those criteria. The property offers 93 acres of beautiful hiking trails. The perfect way to go for a lovely walk and get your dog’s energy out!
WHICH TRAIL SHOULD YOU TAKE? THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT CHOICES BUT HERE ARE THREE OF OUR FAVORITE DOG WALKING TRAILS:
RED OAK TRAIL
From the visitor parking lot, find the kiosk, where you can grab a map of all of the trails. Right next to it, you will find the start of the Red Oak Trail. Follow the red-marked trees to stay on the trail. This trail can be a bit challenging to start off, with large tree roots and rocks throughout. But don't worry—the scenic views are sure to make it worth it! After crossing a long bridge and climbing up a short set of rugged stairs, you and your pup have made it through the most difficult part.
Atop the stairs you should find a sign indicating the intersection between the Red Oak Trail and the Brook Trail. You'll want to take a right on the Brook Trail toward Brookdale Road. This will be a longer, more relaxing stroll through the beautiful wooded trail. Fido is sure to love all of the scenery as much as you do, along with the fresh air and open space to roam. The Brook Trail has several board walks, preventing you from having to take a muddy dog back to your home.
As you near the end of the Brook Trail, you will see a sign for the Pond Trail. The serene view of both the pond and the stunning greenery surrounding it is the perfect reward for finishing your hike! While swimming (for both humans and canines) is not permitted in the pond, take time with your dog to enjoy the view, play in the leaves, and appreciate the world around you.
The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens dog-friendly hiking trails are waiting for you and Fido to explore! Try out the Red Oak, Brook, and Pond Trails and many more the next time you and your best furry friend come to visit.
Visit our website and learn how you and your dog can become Members and enjoy all the perks that we have to offer including summer Yappy Hours (social hour for you and your dog)!
