PACK ADVENTURE: Hike and Ice Cream in Northwood

Pack Adventures are hiking adventures that happen during the week. They attract a smaller group of people which is perfect for dogs that need some additional space in a group.

We will explore Northwood Meadows State Park and hike the Huckins Orchard Trail from the parking lot to the Lake Trail loop and back for approximately 2.5 to 2.7 miles. It sounds like they are still repairing the dam so there will most likely be no water. If it is a hot day, we have a backup hike we will switch to where dogs can cool off in the water.

After, join us for a 5 minute drive to Johnson’s Dairy Bar for pup cups and a sweet treat for ourselves.

Benefits of joining us include:

  • Reconnect with Nature: Escape the hustle and bustle of your busy work week and reconnect with the natural world. This adventure offers a tranquil setting that allows both you and your dog to enjoy the peace and beauty of Northwood Meadows State Park.
  • Social Learning: With a smaller group, you and your dog can observe and learn from other confident dogs and their handlers. This setting is perfect for dogs and their people who may require extra space and a more gentle introduction to group dynamics.
  • Connect with Like-Minded People: Meet and bond with other dog lovers who share your passion for pets and the outdoors. Pack adventures foster a sense of community and camaraderie among participants.
  • Enhance Your Dog’s Behavior: Regular participation in structured group activities like these can lead to better behavior at home as dogs learn to navigate social situations more effectively.
  • Opportunity for Training: Smaller group settings provide unique opportunities to practice training in real-world conditions, reinforcing cues and behaviors learned in more controlled environments.

Reactive Dog Level 2. See our Comfort Chart for explanation. Dogs must be on leash at this trail. The trail is mostly wide but does get narrower in locations. There are places to step off if we meet an oncoming dog. We do not anticipate much traffic during the week. Please remember that you are also welcome to attend without your dog if you feel this would be an uncomfortable setting for them. If you have concerns or questions about if this event is right for your dog, please email for assistance.


The Trails are rated as Level 1.5 Moderate. See an explanation of our Trail Rating System. Proper footwear is highly recommended since leaves cover the trails and roots/rocks may be hidden. There may also a few muddy areas.
