Mower Reservoir via Westminster Hill Trail is a 4.3 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Broomfield, Colorado that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running and is best used from April until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This is a perfect after work trail-run with your pooch! The parking lots have the most activity and dogs around. If you start running on the trail you quickly have more privacy and room to increase your pace1 The trail switches from rocky to gravel, is wide enough to pass another dog owner comfortably without having to put your dog back on a leash, does a large loop to connect the parking lots on Simms Street and 100th, and provides access to Stanley Lake. We did the path to Stanley Lake and then headed West to take in the sunset. If you are looking to get outdoor exercise after work with your dog, this is a perfect location!
Generally pretty flat. Has a good spread of trails that span all over the park. Very dog friendly - mine loves it here.
Pretty simple trail. Bring your dog! They will love it! Easily the largest dog park I've even been to!
Loved the walk at 530am and didn't know it was a dog park and Loved seeing so many and petting them! If I knew I would'vr bought my li'l doggy
People please realize that this is a OFF-LEASH DOG PARK!!! It has a canal with reasonably clean water that pretty much all the dogs play in. That being said, if you are NOT willing to get a little wet from shaking dogs then don't bother. Personally, my dog loves it here but I never enjoy hearing someone complain about getting wet or annoyed by dogs...AT A DOG PARK. If your dog is well behaved, then by all means come and check this place out!
Lots of open space and once you get past the front, it's great for practicing off leash walking with your dog without too many distractions!
Hike at your own risk. This open space lies due east and well within the fallout zone of the former Rocky Flats factory. That facility manufactured parts for nuclear bombs out of plutonium and both airborne and waterborne waste has been documented in this area. The Woman Creek reservoir, which is visible past Mower Reservoir on the west side of the open space is a catchment pond for keeping polluted waste from continuing to Stanley Lake.
Great dog park! Very large area!
