08/09/2022 | by Lyles Armour | Local Activities

If your dog loves nature as much as you do, let them explore the Rocky Mountains with you during your next getaway! There are plenty of dog-friendly activities in Estes Park, especially if you want them to tag along during your outdoor adventure. You have opportunities to bring them along for dinner at an outdoor patio or take them to have some fun with their furry friends at the local dog park. Estes Park is just the place for your dog to have their own Rocky Mountain adventure!

Dog-Friendly Dining

Whether you want to grab a bite to sip on a locally crafted brew, there are plenty of dogs friendly restaurants and breweries ready to accommodate your pup. You can sit out on the outdoor patio over at The Barrel with your dog and enjoy some great comfort food and drinks with great mountain views.

Estes Park Hiking Trails

Explore the vast amount of nature in the Rocky Mountains with your dog right at your side! Estes Park is home to trails like Homer Rouse Trail and Lily Mountain Trail both welcome dogs and host areas for them to be off leash as well. Lily Mountain Trail is a more advanced hike with a good amount of heightened elevation. Make sure you and your dog are comfortable making the journey up!

Estes Valley Dog Park

Let your dog play with its fellow furry friends all by a lake at Estes Valley Dog Park. It’s fully fenced, allowing your pet to roam free and have safe fun. The park is divided into two areas, one for larger dogs and one for smaller dogs. Your pet can also take a dip in the area during the summer!

Lake Estes

Take in the beauty of the waters of Lake Estes with a pleasant walk with your dog! The Lake Estes Trail is a 4.0-mile loop trail where you dog can explore while on leash. There isn’t many shady spots along the trail, so pack plenty of water for you and your dog if you’re out in the sun.
