Dubbed “The Hub City”, Colton has rightfully
earned its title as a central location surrounded by several “mutttropolises”. Even though there are no dog parks within the city limits, there are 6 off-leash areas and several trails in 10 miles to
keep the city’s pups in tip-top shape. When local pooches are feeling under the
weather, they can either pay a visit to the local animal hospital or one of the 16 vets within the adjacent communities!
Just 5 miles away in the city of Riverside is Carlson Dog
Park, a convenient bark park which has grown to be a neighborhood staple. The
park has multiple runs to indulge dogs with a variety of needs, including small
and large dog areas, an exercise run, and a puppies-only section! Vivacious doggies
love showing off in the park’s agility section, where they can dash, dart, and
shimmy through all the obstacles the course offers. Owners love the gorgeous
setting this park provides, with beautiful Mt. Rubidoux as the park’s backdrop.
If your pup is looking to prolong his adventures, the Mt. Rubidoux trailhead can
be found right beside the park for a scenic yet convenient hike. This
spectacular mountain expedition will have your canine thinking he is Indiana
Bones -- just be sure to bring some water and a collapsible bowl!
