Area dog owners are reminded their dogs must be on a leash when visiting state parks according to state law. This law is intended to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all park users. As far as I know the law does not make exceptions for “good” dogs. St. Lawrence County also has an annual dog quarantine against dogs running free during the winter months. If a dog owner is not willing to put their dog on a leash while visiting Higley Flow State Park, it would be best to leave Fido at home. Let’s make voluntary compliance work this winter!
