Are dogs and horses allowed?

Currently, dogs and horses are not allowed at Rueter-Hess.  However, on-leash dog runs are included in the Master Plan when trails are developed.  In an effort to protect water quality, they will not be allowed in or near the water.  

Horse trails are included in the Master Plan on the north side of Hess Road - due to the bacteria that horses produce, they will not be permitted on the reservoir side of the property.
