Your Dog's Favorite Hikes In Wyoming

Ralph loves to walk in the Flaming Gorge Recreation Area, especially on the Little Hole National Recreation Trail along the Green River. The clear green waters are beautiful and there never seems to be much traffic, especially during the week. It is a flat walk in the gorge most of the way. The whole trail is about seven miles so if you don't have two cars you'll have to backtrack - unless you flat down the river!

We just came back from Jackson, Wyoming, and, next to Jasper, it is a great place for dogs. The town itself is very dog friendly. Some of the shops allow dogs inside and most of the outdoor patios at restaurants allow dogs. The trails are "voice-control" rather than leash control. We hiked or mountain biked every day on the Cache Creek trail which travels next to the creek (always a source for water) through beautiful country. It's a wide trail that starts at about 6,200 feet and gradually gains elevation. There are several loops off the main trail and we never had enough time to explore the entire length. Another trail is the mile and a quarter hike up Snow King ski hill, right next to town. It's an off leash trail and it's very steep but the views up and down are wonderful. Lots of locals do this on a regular basis with their dogs. If you don't have a dog you can take the chairlift down for a dollar. AND, to top it all off, we found a deluxe dog beach on the Snake River just 10 minutes outside Jackson as you head toward Wilson (I think it was route 22) right under the first bridge. There is a separate channel of water where the current isn't too strong and we would spend the afternoons floating down with our dogs swimming next to us. It was great.
