- JaraJul. 22, 2020Beautiful scenery!
My dog and I went up to MM 16 (as of July 2020, there is construction at the top so we were told this was as far as we could go). Sadly, it was cloudy at the top so we weren't able to enjoy any great views from up there, but we pulled off at a gift shop around MM 7 and there was a beautiful reservoir that was so serene and peaceful to enjoy for a while. My dog did fine with the heights and I didn't notice any labored breathing. Dogs aren't allowed in the water, though, but my dog doesn't like swimming so this wasn't a problem for us. Dogs are also not allowed in any of the gift shops, which was a bummer because I had wanted a souvenir.
- AmberJul. 4, 2020Awesome Views!
We brought our little dog with us all the way to mile marker 16. She did just fine (better than me lol). at about mile marker 7 there is a fantastic picnic area that we stopped at. Lots of space to look around and have a nice picnic. It will be a bit chilly even in summer, but the smell of fresh pine at this picnic area is amazing.

We took our 2 year old boxer with us to the peak. He didn't seem to show any signs of labored breathing. However, the top of the mountain was very cold, and there was a lot of construction going on (hence 4 bones instead of 5). There wasnt much to do at the top of the peak other than enjoy the scenery. Dogs are not allowed in the gift shop, so we weren't able to go in together, as one of is had to stay with the dog outside. The views are 100% worth it though!

This was a great stop in Colorado, the view was so incredible. I will say that you do need to watch your dog with the altitude, my dog was fine for the most part but I did notice him getting a bit tired and slowing down while we were at the summit, so I went and sat in the car with him for a bit but he ended up being fine! Dogs are not allowed in the store at the top so you will have to wait outside with them!
- JaslynJul. 9, 2018Awesome, but watch the altitude
We loved our trip to Pike's Peak and the staff loved our dog! The only thing I would caution dog owners about is the altitude, just keep an eye on your dog's breathing on the way up and once you get up there. Our dog did well but just something to keep in mind.

This was one of our favorite hikes ... Very well marked .. Walked through different terrains. Easy to hard ! Had lots of shade . Beautiful views ! 2 paws up !
- KenMore than a year agoNo swimming allowed
I don't know if the policy recently changed but dogs are not allowed in the water. We were told the reservoirs are the water supply for Colorado Springs. We were disappointed after making the 1.5 hour drive with our puppy only to be told no swimming.
- Mickey hendricksonMore than a year agoIf your dog likes swimming...
what a great place to bring your water loving dogs. I brought my black lab mix Bruno here and it was amazing. he loves when I throw sticks in the lake so he can dive in after it...the scenery is beautiful and you can easily spend a few hours and not even know it. I recommend this if you love the outdoors
