The Pack Walk IS ON! Wear sturdy shoes or boots as the trail will likely be muddy in spots and dress warmly. It’s chilly out there today!

How to find us: We will meet in the unpaved parking lot inside the park. The entrance to the park is on the right, just past the lights for Whiskey Road on the northbound side of William Floyd Parkway. Follow the unpaved road to the parking area.

Because of the forecast for rain on Saturday, we have rescheduled our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Brookhaven State Park to Sunday, March 24th. Please make sure to check our website, Facebook or Meetup around 9  a.m. Sunday morning to make sure the Pack Walk is still on. If there is no announcement, the Pack Walk is on! 

To start off our 2024 season, please join us on Sunday, March 24th, for our first-ever LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Brookhaven State 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 Ridge, Suffolk County, Brookhaven State Park covers more than 1,638 acres. It includes a large amount of the Long Island Pine Barrens, but also contains scattered wetlands.

We will be walking on the Brookhaven Short Loop Trail which is a 1.8-mile loop trail. It is generally considered an easy route and usually takes an average of 34 min to complete, but as we are usually a larger group and have dogs with us it may take us a bit longer. It is fairly wide and flat, and we stop a few times along the trail for the slower people to catch up and for the dogs to take a water break.

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


This should be a great first LI-DOG Pack Walk™ of the 2024 season! We hope you can join us at Brookhaven State Park on Sun., the 24th!

**In the event of inclement weather, please check our Meetup or Facebook Group as we will post any weather-related changes by 9 am Sunday morning. If there is no announcement, the Pack Walk is on! **
