Thank you for your interest in our Outward Hounds Hiking Club. OHHC is a great way for the dogs in our care to get a break from the hustle and bustle of the BWAR adoption center, and get the necessary exercise to help them stay physically and mentally fit. Their well-being is important to us, and we hope that you can take the time to explore with us the forests and parks in our area, and give a dog this much needed time out and about!

Our club meets every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday at 10 am at our adoption center ( 31 Glendale Avenue ). All hikers must be at least 18 years old to hike with a dog of their own, though volunteers of all ages are invited to hike with us! Our volunteer hike leaders will leash up an appropriate dog for your experience and capabilities. You'll then load up and caravan out to the trail head in your vehicles. If you prefer to have a kennel to transport your dog in your car, be sure to mention it to the hike leaders who will help you get set up.

We usually hike moderate to strenuous trails, a 3-5 miles in length, and are usually back by 12:30 pm -1 pm. Unless the weather is really bad, we will have a scheduled morning hike every week on these days. There is no commitment necessary; you can come and hike when it works with your schedule.

Feel free to join one of the hikes, but before you go on your first hike, stop by the front desk of our adoption center a little early and sign a waiver.
