Description

One thing is for sure, pets and people living in Boulder love the outdoors. So it’s no surprise that your doggo will absolutely go mutts over Eldorado Canyon State Park. With stunning sandstone cliffs and the meandering South Boulder Creek, this park seriously delivers in the scenery department.

This park has five furrific trails that will give your pal the chance to get some exercise and see its natural beauty. Eldorado Canyon Trail, Rattlesnake Gulch, and Crescent Meadows are great options if your pup has some energy and is up for an adventure. If you want something shorter and mellower, hop on the Streamside or Fowler Trails. No matter where you hike, be sure to have your camera ready. The unique rock formations and abundant wildlife make this place a photographer’s dream.

Eldorado Canyon is also a pawsome spot for fly fishing. The creek is chock full of brown and rainbow trout. If you don’t have a Colorado fishing license, pick one up at the Visitors Center. There’s also a beautiful picnic area right next to South Boulder Creek. After reeling in a few fish, enjoy a leisurely lunch with your pup. Just don’t forget to bring them some biscuits to munch on. Tables are limited and during the summer they fill up quickly, so head over early to grab a spot.

It’s worth noting that Eldorado Canyon is one of the premier climbing destinations in the United States. Climbers come from all around the world to scurry up the famous sandstone cliffs. While your doggo may not be the best belay partner, they are certainly welcome to watch as you make your way up the rock face.

Be sure to always carry enough water for you and your pooch. And don’t forget to bring some clean up bags. Eldorado Canyon State Park is one puptacular spot that your pup will want to visit again and again!
