In addition to all the outdoor pursuits you can experience with your four-legged friend outside of town, there are also great trails steps outside your door to go for a quick walk or jog year round. One of the most popular trails for locals and tourists alike is the Walton Creek trail. Situated close to the downtown and ski resorts, this trail winds its way along Walton Creek. This trail is popular with hikers, bikers, dog-walkers, and equestrians alike, so make sure your dog is well trained on the leash and be prepared to meet a variety of new friends out enjoying the outdoors.
Walton Creek Trail is maintained by the city, but expect it to be hard packed and in a natural state. If you are used to city walking make sure you wear sturdy shoes in summer and boots in the winter and bring water for yourself. Your dog will be delighted to take a dip in the creek on hot days and tromp in the snow during the winter.
This trail truly is the pathway between downtown and the more residential areas. Make a puppy playdate with friends in River Creek or Whistler park and meet up on the trail. If you have a more active dog, you can enjoy a nice run on the joint-friendly dirt path while your pup works out his energy. You'll see every kind of outdoor-loving dog and person (and the occasional horse) so this trail is best for well trained and friendly dogs.
