Area Attractions

FENCE (Foothills Equestrian Nature Center) is a 5 minute walk or 2  minute car ride away from Barking Fox Farm. It's a wonderful place to walk your dogs on their beautiful trails. Another nearby trail system is the Blue Wall Passage of the Palmetto Trail and it's only a few minutes from the farm. This is a very "doggy friendly" area. Meet our doggie guests.
