At Twin Lakes State Park, we love to see park guests bring their k-9 friends, so to celebrate the puppy love, the park is offering a guided dog hike called Gone to the Dogs!
Now groups of park guests and their puppy pals can join a park interpreter on Dogwood Hollow Trail to pant, wag tails, and learn about the wild K-9s of Virginia. The first of several hikes is scheduled for Sunday, September 2, 2012 at 12:30 p.m.

After the hike, park guests are welcome to let their dogs cool off in Goodwin Lake in the designated areas while on a leash. Whether you are visiting the park for the day or camping out come join us on one of the many scheduled dog hikes.

All dogs are required to have on a leash and the same goes for our dog hike. Please bring plenty of water for yourself and your K-9. If you forget, water is available for purchase at the concession stand before the hike. The hikes are subject to change due to the weather. If you are interested in hearing more about the dog hike or want to participate please contact us by calling the park office at 434-392-3435 or by email.
