This May, I had a fantastic trip to Bethel, Maine with Dexter, his buddy Levi, and my friend Chris. You can read more about that fun adventure in this post. However, we ran out of time and were not able to experience all that Bethel, Maine has to offer their dog guests and their doggie residents. I have a feeling we will be back to experience some of these great dog-friendly Maine attractions.
- Bethel Outdoor Adventure & Campground– This family-owned business is not only a fun outdoor adventure for the human folks, but dog-adventure lovers, too. When visiting this attraction located on the banks of the Androscoggin River, with spectacular mountain views, you and your dog can enjoy canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, or kayaking! The friendly staff will provide local maps and all technical equipment, offer advice and help where needed, and make it simple and convenient for you to enjoy a great day.
- Hiking and Walking Trails-With the White Mountain National Forest, Grafton Notch State Park, and the Appalachian Trail nearby, you and your dog will have a large variety of hiking and walking options. You can choose from easy paved trails to more extreme trails and hikes. The possibilities are endless.
- Scenic Drives-You and your dog can head out in any direction and find stunning mountain views, lakes, and rivers. These scenic road trips are perfect year-round, but during fall foliage time (usually early October) the area is consistently ranked among New England’s top destinations for foliage viewing by Yankee Magazine.
- Bethel Village Historic Walk– You and your dog can step back in time and enjoy a historic walking tour. Take a leisurely walk through Bethel Village on this self-guided tour of 39 historic homes and sites built from the 1770s to the 1920s. Your dog is even welcome at the Museums of the Bethel Historical Society!
- Covered Bridge Tour-There’s something unique about finding old covered bridges. Bethel, Maine offers four famous artists’ covered bridges to check out. You and your dog can go to the Sunday River in Newry then on to the village of Andover and the Lovejoy Covered Bridge over the Ellis River. Don’t forget your camera for some amazing shots.
