American Basin Trail

The American Basin Trail is a 4 mile hike in the San Juan Mountains that will take about 3 hours to complete round-trip. Since the trail is owned by the Bureau of Land Management, dogs are allowed off-leash both on the trail and surrounding wildflower meadows. However, Fido's favorite part will undoubtedly be taking a refreshing dip in Sloan Lake at the end of the trail, so don't forget to bring a towel!

Take a walk around the Windsor Lake Trail which surrounds the perimeter of the lake. The trail is 2.25 miles around and concrete. On the north side of the lake is an off-leash dog park area that's been fenced off and offers access to the lake for dogs. It has trees for shade and benches for owners to sit. It's a small dog park, but is more for dogs to swim in the lake than for dog walking. The trail around the lake is great for walking your dogs.
