We haven't been to Fahnestock for a while, and decided to go back and do this hike. We've done this hike several times, and its a favorite for us. It has a lot of variety - ponds, a therapeutic riding center, farms, and a stream.
Dogs must be leashed when you pass by the therapeutic riding center. And shortly after that, there is a farm. Today there were cattle in the pasture this hike walks by. Trek was on leash at that point, and luckily he is well behaved and didn't aggravate the cattle. At times he looked very interested in them, and at other times, he avoided eye contact. After walking around the pasture, we were walking through a field - and found ourselves approaching cattle who must have escaped their pasture. They watched us, but didn't bother us.

|A great spot for swimming. Which he did, despite it being cold.|
