Gunnison, Colorado, is a beautiful mountain city with tons of community parks and a cozy, small-town vibe. Whether you find yourself en route to the Rocky Mountains or are just looking for a beautiful city to visit, Gunnison has plenty to of-fur! With spectacular snow-capped mountains in almost every direction, this city is ideal for pet parents that love the outdoors. Lovingly known as Gunny by its residents, the village has at least four veterinarians within the city limits and more in the surrounding townships.

A quintessential western mountain valley town, Gunnison is ideal for adventurous pups that enjoy leashing up and exploring nature. Hungry? Grab a bite with Fido on the pet-friendly patio of Palisades, just off Main Street. After you fuel up, head down to the Hartman Rock Recreation Center, about 14 minutes by car, and check out the many scenic trails with your canine! 

Want to take in the sights without leaving the comfort of your car? Pack up a lunch and load up the car with your furry friends and drive along the Gunnison Park Loop Scenic Drive. You’ll get exceptional views of all the nearby mountains, and even a sneak peek into the neighboring towns!

    #1 West Gunnison

    48
    Most of Gunnison is considered West Gunnison, and the local college is Western State Colorado University. However, this neighborhood happens to be the more secluded area of the city, as it spans closer towards the Gunnison River with less populated neighborhoods on the way. If you and Fido are looking for a cozy college town to settle into, but are searching for a quiet region in the middle of it all, West Gunnison is the spot! While you’re a little ways away from the community parks nearby, you can explore the riverbanks and untouched grasslands surrounding the small mountain town. You'll also find Gunnison KOA in this part of town, a Fido-friendly campground along the Gunnison River. Pets are welcome, but must wear a leash no longer than 6 feet.

    #5 Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

    0
    This national park is just a small portion of the Black Canyon, named for the magnificent sculpted rock formations made by millions of years of the Gunnison River flowing through it. A spectacular place to sleep under the stars, Black Canyon welcomes visitors both four- and two-legged! There is plenty of hiking to explore; however, the park often implements temporary restrictions in certain areas for dog walking. Stick to the North Rim campground for overnight excursions and the Cedar Point or North Rim Chasm View Nature trails. Remember, Fido has to remain leashed while in the park, even at your campsite!
