To start off our 2023 season, please join us on Saturday, March 18th for our first-ever LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Southaven County Park! LI-DOG Pack Walks™–group on-leash walks–are a great way to enjoy Long Island’s beautiful parks with your dog, while meeting new friends and their pups. Located in Yaphank, Suffolk County, Southaven County Park covers more than 1,300 acres of pine-oak forest and is split by the Carmans River. It is one of the first county parks opened to the public in the 1960’s.

The trail, which is generally considered easy, is a 2.8-mile loop, but we will be walking approximately 2 miles which should take us about an hour. There is a turn-off where you can make the walk shorter if you wish. In general, the trails at this park are wide, dirt and easy to follow. The one which we will be following parallels the river and then we’ll turn onto the main trail before we head back.

Please be aware that dogs must remain leashed AT ALL TIMES on the Pack Walk™. Please also make sure to bring poop bags–as clean-up is a must! Also, no retractable leashes as we’ll be walking as a group and people and dogs can get tangled. Please note the restrooms are closed at this time of year.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early so you can sign in and we can start on time.
