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.

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!

Great place for a walk, with or without a dog.
Go there expecting off leash dogs. Don't be surprised about aggressive breeds and high energy dogs.
They'll be wet and loud.

This is a great walk to take with your dog(s) it's off leash for most of it, and there is a great swim area for them at the end, and a waterhole along the way as well. We always have a good time. It's just very dusty!

Took my cocker spaniel there today he loved it. Some people need to be a bit more responsible with their dogs and pick up after them.

This is a beautiful park, but dogs are babies on this park.

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
