Dog Areas in Cripple Creek

Cripple Creek, Colorado is a historic city with plenty for you and Fido to do and see. During the Colorado Gold Rush in the late 19th-century, more than $500 million dollars' worth of gold ore was dug up here! Although Cripple Creek was once a prime gold mining camp, its history predates the Colorado Gold Rush -- this settlement was also a popular spot for cattle ranchers.

Today, Cripple Creek is a furrific vacation destination, especially for history-loving hounds and humans. Looking for an outdoor adventure? The first thing you need to do is get ready to go camping. The RNK Park and Camp is by far the local favorite of several campgrounds in the area. There are many trails here which wind along a stream, and you and your pooch will love exploring them! The campground is RV-friendly, but if you're looking for a rugged experience, pitch a tent and stay for a couple of days.

Next, put on your hiking shoes. The Vindicator Valley Trailhead is a walk through history. Along the way, you can snap photos of Cripple Creek's abandoned gold mines! While you cannot go into any of the buildings, you can walk the trail through the town and learn more about the town's mining history.

    Start your excursions in Cripple Creek at the Cripple Creek Heritage and Visitor Center. While you can't take your fur-baby inside the building, there are paths for him to explore outside. There is even a fenced area where he can play off-leash! One path will lead you to an overlook where you'll find a sweeping view of the area as well as information on Pike's Peak as well. There are restrooms for the humans; just bring your pup's water dish. There are doggie waste bags up front by the fenced area, but you will need some of your own for the other paths.

Down below the two-mile shaft, you can go on a tour of the actual shaft. Pets are no longer allowed down below because of the tight space. There are restrooms above ground as well as water fountains. You may want to bring a water dish with you. You will also need to bring doggie waste bags so you can keep the grounds clean.
