Sitting in the valley of the Roaring Fork River lies Snowmass, a small community near the mouth of the Snowmass Creek right outside of Aspen. This quiet town is a lovely place to relax with your pup and enjoy a few hiking trails. There are no veterinarians in Snowmass, but just down the road in Basalt, there are three you can visit.
Grab Fido and head over to the Snowmass Area to explore and have a nice camping adventure with your furry pal. The Snowmass Area is located in the White River National Forest, and offers 3,132-acres of terrain that you and your dog can hike through and explore together. Make sure when you're visiting to keep your pup on a leash.
Go on a hike along the Hardscrabble and Williams Lakes trail. The 5.4-mile trail will give you an elevation gain of 1,456-feet on an out and back route. While hiking, you will come across a lake where you and your pup can stop for some water, and along the path, you will be covered by trees to keep you both shaded. The trail is known to be a little difficult, so make sure you and your dog are up for a challenge when you head out to hike this trail.
Snowmass is a great town to hike around and explore with Fido by your side.
