Tammy McCarley has hiked with her dog, Sienna (a Golden Retriever-Chow mix), for four years throughout New York. In Best Hikes with Dogs New York City & Beyond she presents the best trails for both you and your dog in New York City, the Hudson Valley, and Long Island. You'll find trails for every type of pet and pet owner, from easy day hikes to overnight trips. Discover rolling hills, rocky escarpments, clear lakes, beautiful beaches, and more.

All hikes in this guidebook are rated 1 to 4 paws to show difficulty for both humans and dogs. Trails are on terrain that's easy on the paws, and there are advance alerts for any canine concerns. A handy Trail Finder Chart helps you choose the trail that's best for you and your dog by comparing hikes by length, terrain, difficulty for dogs, and features such as backpacking options. This guidebook also includes loads of helpful tips: how to prepare your dog for a hike, what to bring, how to be responsible trail users, dealing with wildlife encounters, and hiking with your pet in the Northeast in all four seasons.
