Dogs at Locust Grove?
I haven't seen any signage at Locust Grove or any information on their website which indicates leashed dogs are not allowed. Can anyone provide official comment on this?   This is otherwise a great set of trails which I don't think most people in the area know about. Perfect for a quick walk through the woods.
