Snyderville is a community in Summit County. Nestled in a wide basin, it sits just miles away from world class ski resorts and some of Utah’s Olympic venues. Trails, parks, ponds, and beautiful views of the Wasatch Mountains, make this a pawsome place to spend time with your four legged friend. Although it is small in size, Snyderville has its own veterinary clinic.
Need a puptastic place to walk your pooch? Look no further than the McLeod Creek Trail network that will make your dog’s tail wag. She’ll follow trails through wetlands, farmlands, over bridges and alongside the creek. You can easily get in a three mile walk with options for side trails and park loops. This trail is used by cyclists, joggers, and other dog walkers, so keep your pooch on leash.
When dinner rolls around, head over to The Junction Pizzeria and Grill. Delve into a cheesy slice of pizza or a thick juicy burger. Dine ale fresco with your pooch at one of the outdoor tables. Café Rio is a local favorite. Order one of the famous smothered burritos to go, or stay and gobble it up at a dog friendly patio table.
Great food, loads of trails, and snow capped mountains
make Snyderville one furrific place!
Your pooch will go mutts over Trailside Park. Spanning over 60 acres, this park has it all- sport courts, disc golf, playgrounds, and a skate park. Most importantly, it has off leash areas for both small and large pups. Your pal can ditch his leash and romp around with new friends while you relax on one of the benches. Shelters are provided to help beat the summer heat. If your pup prefers exercising on a path, follow the park’s one mile off leash trail. He can trot along while enjoying the fresh mountain air and warm sunshine. Just be sure to watch the signs so you know when he needs to go back on leash.
Willow Creek Dog Park is certainly a pup-ular canine hang out. Don’t let your dog miss out on all the fun, stop by and let her mix it up with new furry playmates. With 2.5 acres to run and wrestle, she’ll have plenty of room to get rid of her extra energy. A large pond is available for doggy swimmers. If she’s not a fan of the water, she can check out the agility equipment. Pet parents can either sit on one of the benches, or take a few laps around the paved trail inside the park. This park is located inside Willow Creek Park. After your pup's done playing, follow the park’s paved path for a nice cool down.
What’s better than hiking with your dog? Hiking with your off leash dog! Run-A-Muk Trail Area is an off leash trail loop where your pal can wander and explore without the confines of a leash. Two miles of trails run through open fields of sage brush and groves of aspen trees. Since this is a dedicated canine space, your pooch will have the chance to mingle with other four legged park patrons. Enjoy views of the surrounding mountains and the nearby Olympic ski jumps as you exercise with your pup. Since water is not available at the trailhead, bring your own so your dog doesn’t get thirsty.
This Park City neighborhood is just a quick 15 minute drive from Snyderville. If your pooch is in the mood for hiking, this is the place to be. A small network of trails weaves around the pine covered slopes. It’s a shady area, so during the dog days of summer, your pup won’t overheat. If you don’t mind a little elevation gain, you can go all the way to Summit Park Peak. It’s about 6 miles round trip, so your four legged hiking buddy will get plenty of exercise. Once at the top, you’ll enjoy views of the Wasatch Mountains and the Park City area. The best part is your dog can be off leash!
Head northwest of Snyderville, and you’ll come to the Gogorza area, home to some furrific trails. Rasmussen Open Space is an expanse of sagebrush and oak woodlands. During June, brightly colored wildflowers add to the beauty. Just over six miles of trails meander through this massive space. Keep in mind this is a heavily used mountain bike zone, so keep your pooch on leash. Toll Canyon is nearby. This tranquil canyon has three main trails that run through river habitat, dense forest, and a few steep climbs. Since wildlife is abundant, dogs must remain on leash.
