    Great Swimming Area And Hiking Area!

    It was really nice. My dog loved swimming there and there was a really nice trail. There were some rocks at the bottom that felt weird on her paws but then she was used to it. Really good place!

    Great Place To Take Fido Swimming!

    $6 to park plus $1 per dog. Watch your step for geese poop in the grass! There’s an area to swim in the lake without Fido and an area where dogs can jump in. Beautiful mountains in the background and looks like a mini beach.

    Nice for walks

    Great place to walk and hike with the pup. $6 to park, but plenty of space to walk around and be alone. I didn't find the dog swim area, but I'm sure it was just because it was my first time. I'll definitely be back soon!

    Great Place for a Swim

    Shadow Cliffs has a private area for dogs to swim, however sometimes the area does not get enough movement and there is a significant amount of algae growing on top (however, its not like dogs really care about that). Overall, it is a great spot to take your dogs to cool off.

    Love this place! Great off leash hike and areas for my pup to swim! Other dogs/owners super friendly too! Will be back.
