We’ve all been there, hiking along, taking in the scenery, when you feel that un-settling squish underneath your hiking boot. You hope that you just stepped in mud, but when you look down, your worst fear has come true… you stepped in dog poop. You curse the irresponsible dog owner who didn’t pick up after their pet, and wonder why they even needed to bring their dog on the trail with them in the first place.
So, dog lovers, how do we prevent these closures from happening? PICK UP AFTER YOUR PET! And I’m not just talking about putting it in a plastic bag and leaving it on the trail for the poop fairy to collect, I mean pick it up and throw it in the next trash can that you see. Picking up after your pet is a small price to pay to keep the land, other users, and your four legged pal happy.
