Manitou Springs is a small, charming municipality situated between the slopes of the Rocky Mountains and the cityscape of Colorado Springs, Colorado. With a population of nearly 5,000 residents, Manitou Springs remains a quaint town with a lot of appeal to tourists. The main stretch of the downtown area consists of rows of local stores and eateries as well as a small park along the creek. Known for its abundance of natural mineral springs, you'll find at least seven fountains in the downtown region spurting out fresh spring water. 


There are many dog-friendly restaurants along Manitou Avenue, Manitou Springs' main stretch. Most of them allow four-legged friends outside on patios during warm days and there a few that allow pets indoors, but do your research beforehand! If you're a tourist in the area, take your pup to the Manitou Cliff Dwellings where dogs are allowed both in the museum and the cliff dwellings.

Manitou Springs is one of the last stops on the drive up to Pikes Peak. The road begins in an upward slope, so expect a lot of hills while you explore the town. Manitou Avenue is one large hill, but its slope is not too steep and easy to walk. The main streets all feature wide sidewalks and plenty of benches with green space for a much-needed rest. If you'd rather explore the residential, wooded areas, prepare yourself for many steep hills and roads with no pedestrian sidewalks. 

Most of Manitou Springs' side roads are fairly quiet traffic-wise, but always keep an eye out for passing cars and keep your pet on a tight leash. Make sure to bring and drink plenty of water, especially if you're not from the area, because the high altitude can get to you. The residential roads might be steep and intimidating, but the views are definitely worth it.

Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs are known for their proximity to hiking trails and outdoor activities. One of the most infamous is the Manitou Incline, a nearly one-mile trail that used to be a cable car track. The trail is a steep incline that takes you up about 2,000 feet in less than a mile, making for a great cardio workout. The Incline is only recommended if you know that you and Fido can handle such a task. 

Two other moderately difficult trails in Manitou are the Barr and Catamount Trails. The Barr Trail takes you up 7,800 feet to the top of Pikes Peak while the Catamount Trail is a six-mile moderate trail. If you'd prefer easier hikes and fun greenways to relax, there are a few places you can go. Right off Manitou Avenue is Memorial Park, a small greenway surrounding a creek where you and Fido can go and relax.
