What's the Best Dog Walk in Hamilton or Wenham?

Dog owners: Where's your go-to walk?

My wife and I (and our old dog) just moved to the North Shore. We've been exploring different walks to take.

Yesterday we did a bit of a walk on a newish-trail under construction at Wenham Lake off Cedar Street. A quick look through the Patch archives shows that the JC Philips Nature Preserve and Wenham Canal walks are also favorites.

Where in Hamilton or Wenham is your favorite dog walk? Share your picks in the comment section.

On the Hamilton side of Pleasant Pond beach area a path leads to a short walk into the Pine and Hemlock Knoll. More trail work is needed to make this a great location. http://www.thetrustees.org/places-to-visit/northeast-ma/pine-and-hemlock-knoll.html

It's hard to beat the Wenham Canal. Wooded on each side and its a beautiful walk.

Thanks! Folks are chiming in on the Hamilton-Wenham Patch Facebook page too: http://www.facebook.com/hamiltonwenhampatch Some of the recommendations there include Chebacco Lake and Bradley Palmer State Park.

Appleton Farm (you need a permit to take you dog.) well worth it and our favorite place.

Essex County Greenbelt has several spectacular protected properties in Hamilton that welcome dogs and their human companions! Pingree Reservation and Willowdale Mill come immediately to mind, but others are also listed in the Property Map pages of their website : http://www.ecga.org/explore_and_engage/property_list

Regardless of where you walk your dog, make sure they are adequately protected against ticks and vaccinated for Lyme. Anecdotal reports from a veterinarian indicate that over 50% of all dogs in Hamilton have Lyme disease. I will never forget a walk with my dog through the Myopia Schooling Fields and having to remove over 200 ticks from her coat.
