A 10-minute drive from Flagstaff's historic downtown, the Flagstaff Ranch neighborhood is most well known for its luxury golf course. A private, gated community, Flagstaff Ranch prides itself on celebrating a relaxed life, secluded from stress and worry. Complete with a spacious clubhouse, residents of this affluent area enjoy access to a pool, hot tub, billiards, and poker room in addition to the vast acreage of golfing green. 

The golf course and its private residences take up nearly 500 acres of the area and can only be visited by going through both automated and manned gates, so unless you have a friend or family member on the other side, it's unlikely you'll be able to walk your dog there. Luckily for you and your pooch, however, there are a number of dog-centric businesses and dog-friendly hikes less than 10 minutes outside of Flagstaff Ranch, including a locally-owned doggie "resort". 

Trails and other walking or playing opportunities await nearby at Fort Tuthill County Park, Ponderosa Trails Park, and University Highlands Park.

Despite the exclusivity of Flagstaff Ranch, there are some broad-rimmed roads you and your pet can enjoy. These roads are paved alongside the Flagstaff Ranch Estates, Aspen Ridge Estates, and Aspen Shadow Condominiums, where views of man-made lakes, local foliage, vast plains, and nearby mountains are present. In the winter, this region may become snowed in, however, so be sure to dress accordingly or re-route. In spring and summer months, Flagstaff's weather can be quite mild, even cool, thanks to the breeze coming off of the flat, wild plains. 

It's much more likely your dog will be walked at neighboring parks or trails, where they're sure to have a fun time and be unencumbered by lack of sidewalks or in danger of interrupting someone's golf game. The landscape of the area is relatively flat with spurts of elevation, making craggy rock formations and humble mountains look as if they sprouted up from nothing. This means that most of the terrain of the trails in Flagstaff mimics the landscape, offering dog-walkers the blatant choice between a mountainous walking trail or a leisurely, less-challenging one.

Flagstaff, Arizona may be a pit-stop for most American road trippers, after all, the Grand Canyon is only an hour and a half away, and Phoenix only two. But many will miss out on what this scenic Southwestern town has to offer: proximity to seven National parks and nature preserves, views of surrounding mountains, and ideal conditions for stargazing on cool, cloudless summer nights (there's even the Lowell Observatory tower if you don't have your own telescope). 

It's no wonder that local greenways only reiterate the beauty and serenity that the American Southwest is associated with. A compiled list of nearby parks and trails, all of which are no more than a 12-minute drive from the Flagstaff Ranch neighborhood, illustrates just how simple it is to give your dog a walk that's not only a workout for you both but also an escape into pine-veiled forests and winding red-dirt paths. 

University Highlands Park

Utilized by the young families in the area, this neighborhood park is a near an elementary school and comes equipped with a playground and soccer fields. If your dog is anxious around children, this may not be the walking route for you. Simple sidewalks line the area and also pave their way through the suburb, allowing you to walk in the park, but also to the park if a longer walk duration were desired.

Ponderosa Trails Park

Wide-set paths and uninterrupted landscape make this park ideal for dogs who love running alongside a jogging or biking companion. There's a quaint playground area complete with a bike rack, trash cans (for poop bags!) and water fountains (for a thirsty pup!). 

Fort Tuthill County Park 

Near the airport, this park is furthest from Flagstaff Ranch but offers the most acreage and shade. A large, sandy playground is available for kids and adults alike, and the trails are wide. So wide, in fact, that this is a popular space for running marathons to be held.
