Riley and I love living the city life but we also really enjoy taking trips to Maine to visit the great outdoors. However, we don’t get to do it very often. So, instead we take a short ride to Stony Brook Reservation. Stony Brook is open year round and during the winter, it is absolutely beautiful. There are Ten to Twelve miles of hiking trails and bicycle paths throughout the reservation so you and your pup can get a great workout while taking in all the scenery. Stony Brook is a great place to take your pup and the entire family. There are soccer fields, baseball fields, tennis courts, fishing, picnic area’s and a skating rink. So no matter what your kids like, there is something for everyone. It is not and enclosed reservation and leashes are required. As much as Riley loves to run free, the “Leashes Required” rule is for their own safety. There have been coyote sightings at the reservation, so I rather keep Riley right by my side. Stony Brook is a great place to visit and if the coyote comment scared you a little bit, just talk to the grounds people. They are super helpful and made me feel a lot better about taking Riley around the reservation.
