One of the coolest things about Blue Mountain is visiting with the different dogs. Aristocratic-looking Weimaraners frolic alongside sweetly disposed yellow labs and Chihuahuas with attitudes. They all have unique personalities and seem happiest when romping in Blue Mountain’s tall grass. (Dogs are allowed to be leash-free at Blue Mountain.) Among the other selling points is the recreation area’s diversity of terrain, which blankets 5,500 acres. Some of it is flat and makes for an easy stroll. Other parts are steeper, meaning if Fido needs a more strenuous romp, you’ll be able to tire him out.
