POOCH PATHS: Hominy Creek River Park

Hominy creek river parkHominy Creek River Park may be one of Asheville's hidden gems for dog owners. This park is tucked away off Brevard Road in West Asheville at 194 Hominy Creek Road. 

Hominy Creek River Park is a great "Pooch Path" because it has a long, paved walking trail right along the French Broad River. In fact, it is part of the French Broad River Greenway -- so you can actually walk your dog all the way from Hominy Creek River Park, through Carrier Park, to the dog park at French Broad River Park. Even if you don't want to go quite that far (over two miles), the walk in Hominy Creek River Park is pleasant in any season. Most of the trail is flat, wide and paved. It does cross under a busy highway, but the view of the river and the kayakers makes up for it.

Hominy Creek River Park has a small parking area, grills and picnic tables, and it is also an outpost for French Broad Outfitters. The park is open until dark.
