Situated in the southern end of the Salt Lake Valley,
Herriman is a suburban city that has experienced great growth over the past
decade. Its welcoming atmosphere and
long list of amenities make it a booming community.
Herriman has no shortage of pet friendly parks, trails and open space. Whether your four legged friend is just visiting or is a full time resident, she can take advantage of endless outdoor fun. There are 27 parks scattered throughout Herriman and all welcome leashed pooches. So, clip on your pup’s leash and take a walk around Mineral Way Park, Freeman Park, Blackpowder Park or Tapestry Park. If your canine buddy prefers trails to parks, check out the 7.2 miles of primitive trails that wind throughout the community. Or follow one of the paved trails. Either way, your furry friend will have a fetching good time!
VCA Oquirrh Hills Animal Hospital is the local veterinary clinic. Dogs living in Herriman take comfort knowing the doctors at this facility have their well being in mind. VCA Oquirrh Hills provides preventative and wellness care and specializes in dermatology and geriatrics. And their advanced dental packages will help keep your pup’s teeth pearly white.
Treat your canine buddy to an afternoon in the park and you’ll see his tail wag with appreciation. Head over to the Pioneer Seventh neighborhood and pay a visit to Rosecrest Park. This neighborhood park has plenty of green space for sniffing, so let your pup’s nose be the guide. Take a brisk walk around the paved walking trails so your pal can strut his stuff while getting his daily dose of exercise. For even more green space and trails, hop over to the nearby Autumn Dusk Park. When your pal is ready for a rest, take a seat on one of the benches and soak in the sunshine.
Wild Hollow is home to The Cove. This little slice of nature is a puptastic spot to spend some time with your furry BFF. Not only does this park have a playground and volleyball court, it also has paved walking trails. Clip on your pup’s leash and take a few laps to get her heart pumping. She’ll love the chance to stretch her four legs while breathing in some fresh air. If her paws need a break, stop and relax on one of the benches. Be sure to give her enough water, you don’t want a thirsty pooch on your hands!
The Camp Williams Road and Jordan Narrows Road area is home to some pawsome hiking. Lace up your boots, grab your pooch and make your way up Lookout Ridge to South Mountain. This 3.5 mile out and back trail is steep, so make sure your furry pal is up for a challenge. Once at the top, your pooch will feel like she conquered the world! You’ll both enjoy views of the Salt Lake Valley and the Wasatch and Oquirrh Mountain Ranges. Since your dog will be trucking up some steep hills, make sure you bring enough water to keep her hydrated.
If your pooch is ready for a walk, there’s no better place to go than Rosecreek Estates. With four parks in close proximity, you can do some serious park hopping. Start with Rosalina Park. With a playground, volleyball court, and walking trails, there will be plenty for your pup to check out. Next, head over to The Ranches Park and take some laps around the paved walking path. When your canine pal is ready to move on, check out Indian Pony Park. Let your pup stroll through the grassy field. Finish your afternoon off at Grand Trotter Park. Take a break on one of the benches, by this time your pup’s paws will be tired!
Is your pup begging for some time in the mountains? Head over to the Copperton area of Herriman and make your way up Yellow Fork Canyon. Your furry friend will thank you for bringing her to this trail. She’ll get plenty of exercise as she makes her way up the 6.9 mile trail. Since the trail is also used by mountain bikers and horseback riders, make sure to keep your pup on leash at all times. This trail gets muddy and hard to access in the winter, so it is best used from March until October. No bones about it, this trail is pawsome!
