Where to Hike With Your Dog in Central Oregon
Experience the natural beauty of Central Oregon at one of Bend’s nearby nature trails. Go for a solitary stroll, take the kids, or go hiking with your dog just minutes away from our hotel. Here are some of the local spots you can go to wander around a wooded path:
  • Robert W. Sawyer Park - With more than 45 sprawling acres surrounded by the Deschutes River, this easy walk connects to natural areas, state parks, and a local golf course. Pack a lunch and cozy up at a picnic table, or keep an eye out for exotic feathered friends on the Oregon Cascade Birding Tour route.
  • Larkspur Trail - Start out near the Bend Senior Center, then head along the open canal as you encounter wildlife and juniper trees ending at Pilot Butte State Park. The pet-friendly stretch features dog stations at each end of the trail.
  • Shevlin Park - Canyon Rim Loop - This 2.2-mile excursion is on the outskirts of downtown Bend, bringing locals out for hiking, biking, jogging, picnicking and pup playtime. Work your way through the trail system, which is open year round.
  • Deschutes River Trail - Pass through Bend, Meadow Camp, and behind the Seventh Mountain Resort, and you’ll come across breathtaking scenery that includes waterfalls, a footbridge and rolling rapids.
The degree of difficulty varies, since there are more than a dozen great spots to go hiking, take in the natural beauty, and bring your dog for some fresh air and sunshine. From Lava Cast Forest and River Cave to the Green Lakes Trail, the Badlands, and Smith Rock State Park, you can spend as much time as you like loving the outdoors. Book your reservations at TownePlace Suites today, and bring your dog along to enjoy Bend’s outdoor beauty.
