Enjoy Dog-Friendly Outings Near Hattiesburg with Your Furry Best Friend

Is your best friend furry, four-legged, and full of positive energy? If so, here are some great dog-friendly outings you can enjoy together this summer, located near our apartments in Hattiesburg, MS.

Longleaf Trace 

Get your daily cardio or simply enjoy each other’s company during a leisurely stroll on this 44-mile linear park. You may access it from any of the numerous restroom-and-parking stations spaced along the way. Trees and other plant life flank both sides of the 10-foot wide, paved trail. Providing plenty of shaded areas during the summer months, as well as interesting smells for your dog to inspect. Bike rental is available near the Hattiesburg trailhead for owners who prefer to slow-pedal and coast while their dogs lope alongside them. Near mile marker 7, you’ll find the Fields of Barktopia dog park. Where your dog can run free and make new friends. You can also camp at any of the seven campsites. So you and your dog can have an overnight or even a multi-day adventure!

Collidium Brewing Company

After a walk or run on the Longleaf Trace trail, you and your dog might be in need of some cool refreshment.  Fortunately, the pet-friendly Collidium Brewing Company is located just half a mile from the Hattiesburg trailhead. Of course, you don’t need an excuse to enjoy a Ghost in the Machine IPA while your dog laps up complimentary water and dog treats.

Check out their eight cold beers on draft and a food menu that features rosemary, garlic aioli, a Swiss cheeseburger, as well as several other sandwiches, salads, and five varieties of loaded fries. You’re sure to find something delicious! Not only may your dog be with you outdoors, but he or she may also accompany you inside. Here you will find shelves that are chock-full of board games to play while making new friends or shooting the breeze with old ones.  Prefer to eat in the comfort of your home? Order ahead online, and pick up your “doggy bags” to go!

Town Square Park

After your meal or beverage, you and your dog may wish to enjoy an evening stroll through Town Square Park. It’s just two-and-a-half miles from the Colludium Brewing Company. In fact, it’s named Mississippi’s “public space of the year” for 2020. Town Square Park features numerous gazebos, linked together by trails, where you and your dog can relax. Near the bend of Gordon Creek that cradles the park is an open-air stage where live music is performed regularly. Including during the weekly farmer’s market, where you can find a wide range of fresh, local produce and tasty treats.
