Dog-Friendly Activities

Because who wants to leave their best friend at home?


Dogs aren't allowed on trails in Rocky Mountain National Park. As the most popular attraction around Estes, this may make bringing a dog seem difficult. However, if you check out our 5 Best Trails to Hike With Your Dog, not only will you be able to bring your favorite four-legged friend, but you'll leave some of the crowds behind as well.


Don't forget the dog park with (in our opinion) the best views! Located along Highway 36 on Community Drive, the Estes Valley Dog Park has space for your dogs to run and play, an obstacle course, and a beach for pups to splash and swim.
