Dog Mountain, Saint Johnsbury

#1 of 8 in Parks in Northeast Kingdom
Nature / Park Must See
Dog Mountain is set on 150 acres on a private mountain top spot in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. The grounds are always open to people and their dogs. Artist, Stephen Huneck and his wife, Gwen, bought the property in 1995. They turned the barn into studio space. After Stephen’s unique visionary experience, the world famous Dog Chapel was built. The unspoiled haven is covered with hiking trails and dog ponds. Wildflowers abound in the summer and snow-shoeing is a favorite activity in the winter. Year after year, the Dog Chapel and the Stephen Huneck Gallery get more and more visitors from all over the world.

There is no leash law on Dog Mountain. Dogs are not just welcome here, they are cherished! Dogs are free to run, play, swim and, best of all, meet other dogs! It's great to hear from tourists and local residents alike how much Dog Mountain means to them and their dogs.

    This is a great place for dogs and owners!! It is very well maintained. The staff and visitors are very friendly and understanding toward dogs. If you are in the area, you must stop by.

    Wow, what an amazing place. If you have a dog and looking for a place for them to run free, trails, and a pond for the dogs to dip in...this is the pace!

    A must-see, legendary Vermont destination -- especially for dog lovers. Created by canine-lover artist as a retreat for pet owners and those who come to the chapel to remember lost pooches. Quiet, restful retreat. Great for hiking. Artist store is worth a peak.

    So peaceful and accepting. Wish we humans could learn this concept soon.
