PACK ADVENTURE: Hike & Swim at Gonic Trails

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.

For this Pack Adventure, we will hike 1.5-2 miles along the Isinglass River along the Gonic Trails in Gonic, NH. The trail is wide and mostly flat. There are lots of areas to step off the trail if approached by another dog and handler. We will hike down to the river to see Locke Falls, relax on the rocks and watch the dogs enjoy cooling off in the water.

After we have enjoyed the falls and the river, we will make our way back to the parking lot by following the red Watson’s Way Trail. This section of the red trail is where the elevation comes in. This is a steep uphill climb. Don’t worry, it is short. You will get a good workout here.

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. This is a popular area but we expect it to be quieter mid-week. Occasionally, you will see off leash dogs here. The trails are wider for the most part and allow for dogs and their people to spread out and step off trail if someone approaches. There is also room to spread out on the rocks and along the water. If you have concerns or questions about if this event is right for your dog, please email for assistance.

This trail is rated Level 1.5-2 Moderate. See an explanation of our Trail Rating System.
