Show Low, AZ is anything but low, sitting at 6,345 feet above sea level. The small town is surrounded by forests and is a popular destination as a recreational area. Show Low, founded in 1870, takes up only over 65 square miles, but this small town loves their dogs! There are 7 different animal clinics here to serve your dog.
The town gets its unique name from a game the two founders had in the 1870s, where they couldn't decide on a name and figured it out by playing a game of seven up, where one owner showed low with a deuce of clubs. The legend is also the reason why the town's famous dog park got its name, The Deuce of Dogs Bark Park. The park holds almost 10 acres of fenced-in land, with open areas and trails leading into the forest. Clean-up stations and water fountains are available.
Head into town afterwards and enjoy some homemade ice cream and soup at America's Pie Company, a small restaurant with dog-friendly seating outside under a giant willow tree. Famous for its outdoor activities and dog friendly attitude, Show Low is in its way to becoming popular with many dog lovers.
In the southern half of the town lies the South White Mountain Road and East Show Low Lake Road neighborhood. Within the community is the Nikolaus Homestead Park, made up of recreational parks and open land that's open to all leashed dogs. The park also has a dog-friendly trail that takes up about .8 miles for a pawsome stroll. If hunger strikes, head right up the street to The House, a dog-friendly restaurant with outdoor seating and serves American courses to humans and complimentary water to dogs.
Bring your dog boating, fishing, hiking or even camping at the Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in the City Center neighborhood. The park is in the most northern part of the community, where it meets the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. Dogs are welcome throughout the park as long as they remain on leash, and can enjoy over 3.1 miles of trail or other activities. At the parking area, there are trash bins and benches, but water and clean-bags need to be brought by the owner. Visitors to the town can stay at the Snowy River Inn, a comfortable in with an affordable pet fee for any size dog.
The Linden neighborhood in Show Low is mostly taken up by the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest and some homes. Amongst the houses is a small park called McCarty Park, a dog-friendly place that allows trail hiking and fetches in the open field for all leashed dogs. Owners must bring clean-up bags and water. Further into the woods is the Los Caballos Trail #638, which spans over 16 miles and makes a great all-day adventure dog humans and their dogs. The trail has waste pins and benches back at the parking lot, but owners must be prepared with water and clean-up bags before they leave.
About 12 miles south of Show Low is the town of Pinetop-Lakeside. The region is a great place to travel for Show Low residents because of the two dog-friendly parks there. The first park is Woodland Lake Park, with access to the Woodland reservoir and over 7.5 of trails through the forest. The second enclosure is the Mountain Meadow Park and offers a more urban getaway in the city with recreational area and open fields. Fido must be kept on a leash in both parks, but at Mountain Meadow Park, owners can close up the gates to the grounds and let their dog run around off leash. Neither park has water fountains or clean-up stations.
The Lakeview neighborhood in Pinetop-Lakeview surrounds Rainbow Lake, 8 miles south of Show Low. The lake has public access to anyone looking to camp, fish and swim in the lake. This access extends to dogs who are not required to stay on a leash while there, and are free to roam the beach, campsite, and lake. The access point only has trash bins; all other amenities must be brought along by owners. Along the northern end of the neighborhood is the Mogollon Rim Trail #615, a 2.5-mile trail that's dog-friendly to lashed-dogs, that travels along the Mogollon Rim for scenic views.
