The Paw Path, as the name suggests, was designed with your four legged friends in mind. The path runs alongside the pristine Smith River at the Smith River Sports Complex. At 0.5 miles long, the Paw Path features many engaging canine activities such as a fire hydrant and a balance beam. Litter bags are available for guests at the path and throughout the facility. The path also benefits the local plant life. The Paw Path Pollinator Garden was created out of concern for the threatened population of native plant pollinators. It features more than 300 pollinator-sustaining wildflowers, trees and shrubs representing 50 native and non-invasive plant species along the half-mile path. All dogs are welcome, but must be under complete and immediate control of owners at all times and must be on a leash no longer than 8 feet.
