I made a rookie mistake by not thoroughly checking the website... dogs are *NOT* allowed (even leashed). Fortunately (thank goodness), my dog is extremely well behaved and the Ranger that saw us (we even waved to each other), must have assumed my pupper was a service animal (which ARE obviously allowed). We finished the short and flat (~1.0 mile) Legacy Trail before seeing the No Pets sign. The GREAT news for those like me who didn't see that pets were prohibited (finally found on the very bottom, in a paragraph, on the "Plan Your Visit" page which can be found by scrolling down on the right of their Home Page) is that if you walk back out back the entrance gate on the road, there are a ton of trails between the Sporting Goods Park and the Arsenal with the same great views of downtown and the mountains. The entire area is covered in wildflowers and the sight of the Buffalo are amazing. I wouldn't classify any of these trails as a "hike". It's wide open, flat, and makes for a very lovely walk outdoors.

more of a trail than a hike. Very pretty but no shade bring a hat.
