Great Fall South Carolina Hikes for you and your dog 

Fall is here and boy am I happy! With the unbearable heat of the summer is was nearly impossible to get out and do anything fun towards the end.
Now it’s time to turn on our weekend warrior sign and get going with these great fall hikes for you and your dog.

If your like me, not only do you want to get in a great workout, but you also want to take some exciting photos as well; check out my recommendations below!


Twins Falls
I have always loved Twin Falls. Its one of the states more beautiful and serene locations. Twin Falls in Sunset, SC. To access the waterfall is an easy 15-minute walk along the .25 mile trail.

Rainbow Falls

If you’re more experienced ( and adventurous) how about a hike up Rainbow Falls? It’s a five-mile hike, but once you reach the destination the view is absolutely breathtaking. Can you image photos here? This rugged trail is absolutely perfect for the couple looking for capturing unique lifestyle photos for their upcoming engagement session. Pretty Place church at the top of the trail is well worth the hike, with magnificent photos waiting for you!

Isaqueena Falls and Stumphouse Tunnel

Hike to Issaqueena Falls and Stumphouse Tunnel if you are looking for a fun and unique trip reminiscent of a pacific northwest adventure. This trail is perfect for beginners, so those wanting unique outdoor photos, but not yet ready to take on the more strenuous trails would love this place! With a 200 foot cascading waterfall, Isaqueena Falls is perfect year round for photography.

Fun workouts to do with your dog this winter

If you plan on getting outdoor during these last few weeks of fall or even this winter remember to bring your pets! They’ve outdoors and need the exercises just as much as you do.

Whether your going fishing or for a hike in the woods, remember your pets would love to join in the fun.

Check out these exercises from PetMd.com

  • Morning Walk
  • Interval Walk
  • Dog Tag
  • Fetch Races
  • Dog Stairs
  • Fetch Tease
  • Squat Tease

Our dog is much older, while we try our best to keep him active, these days he prefers to stay inside and chill. If you have an older dog, that doesn’t really want to keep moving like he used to, try these indoor exercises that he will love doing.

You don’t need much to get your dog up and moving, finding old toys and clothes around the house will do the trick. Small activities to keep your pups brain stimulated can go a long way during the cold winter months when you can’t make outdoors for too long. Remember your pets are just like small children and need constantly physical activity to keep their muscles working. A few minutes a day is all that’s needed to keep your dog conditioned.

Fun ways to workout with your dog this summer 

Our dog goes everywhere with us! Yes loves the outdoors just as much as we do, so I try to often include him in my workouts as well. It took a minute for me to think of “fun” workouts, because I don’t know if it could be considered fun for the dog necessarily. 

Now that it’s summer, I’m careful not too spend too much time outside with him during the heat of the day, so we get a lot of pur exercises done first thing in the mornings. 

Check out these fun exercises you can do with your dog.

  • Running
  • Kayaking 
  • Dog Yoga
  • Fetch
  • Cycling
  • Skating
