Take A Hike With A Rescue Animal

By Usery Mountain Regional Park

Don’t have a dog? No problem! This weekend Maricopa County’s Animal Care & Control and Parks and Recreation Departments have united to bring you this program. You can “test drive” potential canine hiking partners to see how they behave on leash and get along with other dogs while learning about trail etiquette and safety. Owned, friendly, leashed dogs that are at least six months old and current on their vaccinations are welcome to join this one-mile trek on our scenic, groomed, Merkle Trail. Please bring water, closed-toe shoes, and an open heart for a possible new best friend, or two. 

This program will be held on the first Saturday of each month from October through March. Location: Area 6.
