Love this nature hike and walk. It is close to tanner park and there are tennis courts you can use anytime for free. It isn't super inclined or intense so you can probably do it easily in winter. Dogs are allowed and lots of off trails you can venture onto.

My 2 small dogs had a blast. It's a fenced trail so you don't have to worry too much about your dogs running off trail. Friendly people.

The dog's had a blast. Nice open trail.
Excellent trail for your dog! Plenty of water to swim around in, other dogs to play with, and it's fenced in all the way around! Unfortunately, some owners don't clean up after their dogs. There are poop bags at trail heads and at markers along the trail. Easy trail!
Hiked the South Trail this morning. The trail was snow covered but easy to follow because of the tracks through the snow from other hikers. Because of the cold was able to walk on top of the snow most of the way. South Trail isn't used nearly as much as the other trails mostly because of the limited parking
I did a Full Moon Hike with a MeetUp group to hike this trail. There was snow on the ground which made the hike a little scary without the "tracks." The hike is dog friendly and fairly easy to hike. My friend and I hiked up maybe 2.5-3 miles before turning back around and the whole way was a slight incline. I would definitely do another night hike up here because of the beautiful scenery. The full moon lot our way and we didn't need flashlights. Other hikers told us that there are moose along the hike but I didn't see any unless it was because We're walking on the road. I normally hike in the day time to be able to see everything, but night hikes you see everything differently. It's hard to take photos because of the fresh powder but I got a few good shots on my phone with my friend and our pups.
