NO DOGS ALLOWED! You have to go through Rocky Mountain National Park gates to get to the trail. The ranger told me no dogs allowed and then explained that the parking lot for this trail is on RMNP property and so is 1 mike if the trail. It wasn’t worth $25 to see if I would get stopped by a ranger, so I turned around and had to find another trail. Lesson: don’t bring your dog on this or plan to go elsewhere with your pup! That’s why I gave it one star cuz the description is wrong. I’m sure the trail is lovely - but I never got to see it.
