Fern Nature Trail — New River State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"New River State Park sits in a fertile, low-lying valley and is well-known for its canoe trails down the winding river, but the lush woods that hug the riverbanks offer great, shady trails for dogs and their people to hike.
A short, 1.2-mile round-trip loop on the Fern Nature Trail gets you up close with the river. If combined with another short, scenic hike at nearby Mount Jefferson State Park (about 8 miles to the west), it is a great way to explore this northwestern part of the state with your dog."
