Dog Friendly Hikes & Parks

Spring in Colorado and the often summer-like weather it brings has Fido looking sorrowfully at the door, doesn’t it? One of the great and unique features of Denver and its suburbs is its seemingly endless supply of places to go with your 4-legged best friend. With Denver Metro sporting open space community formats, there are many trails, parks and off-leash dog parks nearby that offer space for running and dog socialization. Corken + Company knows as Denver Metro realtors that many of our clients looking to buy a home in Denver, sell a home in Denver, or even lease a home in Denver, have four legged companions.

In the South Denver area, consider Cherry Creek State Park, the Chatfield State Park, and the numerous off-leash parks in the Highlands Ranch area. Downtown Denver also has a variety of options like Stapleton Dog ParkKennedy Dog ParkFuller Dog ParkBerkeley Dog ParkBarnum Dog Park, and Green Valley Ranch Dog Park.

Hiking is also a great way for dogs and their owners to get exercise. Best Hikes with Dogs, Colorado by Ania Savage is a great resource with maps, trail info like difficulty and distance for finding a hike perfect for man (or woman) and their best friend. Amazon has it with prime shipping.
