Three Rivers offers abundant scenery for you and your dog to enjoy year round, with paved, regional and skijoring/dog sledding trails that are dog-friendly. Dogs on a six-foot non-retractable leash are allowed on all paved trails except where posted otherwise. Owners must pick-up after their dogs.



Wooded hiking trail

One of the best ways to explore year-round is to head out for a hike on the extensive trail system in Three Rivers. Trails wind through the woodland, grassland and wetland habitats of many species of wildlife. You’ll be amazed at what you might see along the way.
