    NOT pet friendly

    I do not consider a park that only allows pets on the asphalt to be pet friendly. Oh he can go off in this little spot and this little spot thousands of acres and you can't find a few acres a few hundred acres maybe where people can enjoy the park with their pets. This location should not be on bring Fido!

    Great views!

    I wish that RMNP was more dog-friendly, since my dog and I both love hiking. We were able to drive through the park and pull off at some parking lots to take in the views, but this was definitely not the most dog-friendly place we visited on our recent trip to Colorado. It was worth the visit, though, but we only stayed about an hour and a half.

    Road construction

    We spent all day driving due to high volumes of visitors to the park and construction. The dog friendly areas are little pull-outs or parking areas. Not overly exciting for the pup. Mostly just a “ride” day for him.
