Looking for good hikes for you and your dog? The truth is that you can take your dog with you on most trails near Denver–but there are exceptions. And there are some trails that just aren’t all that enjoyable for Fido. On each hiking trail profile we let you know if dogs are allowed, but here we try to point out the best. We’ve selected these hikes based on feedback from our thirteen year old, Black Lab, Francine. She’s confident that your dog will love them. Her favorite is Elk Meadows in Evergreen and it’s off-leash area with 3 miles of trails across 100 acres of beautiful Colorado. It should be noted that it’s good to assume that all these hikes require our dogs to be on a leash unless otherwise indicated.
