We finally had a chance to get the whole family out for a short hike this weekend. Our Golden Retriever hasn’t had a chance to go swimming in months so we thought it would be nice to take her out to one of her favorite swimmin’ holes: [Stone Mountain State Park].

This is just one of several trail options offered at the park. We like the Venable Lake Loop because it has several easy entry points for the dog to go swimming and just enough length to make it worthwhile as a leasurely hike.
