Dimple Dell Nature Park

Dimple Dell is a natural ravine that runs from Sandy, Utah and heads almost due east up into the mountains. There are numerous hiking, biking and horseback riding trails that crisscross the ravine. In early spring and into early summer there is a river that runs at the bottom. The water can run very fast and be extremely cold. You must keep your dogs leashed at all times, but many locals disregard this ordinance and pay hefty fines when they get caught. The trails are not difficult once you have descended into (and out of) the ravine. The trails are well maintained and there is quite a bit of natural wildlife. You must bring in your own waste bags and carry them out as well. Lots of shade in summer.

Mill Creek Canyon

Even-numbered days -- MUST be leashed at all times in all areas of the canyon. Odd-numbered days -- Are allowed off-leash only on trails. Dogs (and horses) must remain outside of Watershed Area. Please properly dispose of dog waste.

Porter Rockwell Trail

The Porter Rockwell Trail (Sandy Rail Trail) is one of 1600 rail-trails supported by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that is working to create a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors. Previously an unused railroad corridor, this "rail-trail" is now a great place to walk Fido in Sandy! The map below shows a parking area with convenient access to the Porter Rockwell Trail (Sandy Rail Trail). Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has generously provided map data for this trail to Bring Fido for informational purposes only.

Paria Canyon Wilderness

Take Fido on a hike amidst the unforgettable beauty at Paria Canyon Wilderness, part of the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. Although much of the Vermilion Cliffs area is open to hiking without a permit, if you plan on hiking in the Paria Canyon Permit Area (including Paria Canyon, Wire Pass and Buckskin Gulch), you must purchase a permit prior to your hike. Permits must be obtained in advance. Online permit applications open 4 months prior to hiking dates. For example, if you are hiking in May, you would submit your permit application in January. Permits are required for each person and each dog. There are no limits on the number of permits given out for day use for the Paria Canyon Wilderness. For information on Coyote Buttes North (The Wave) permits, please the listing for Coyote Buttes North.
