Ridge Trail Bulldog

We know you want to be outside. So does your dog.

The Ridge Trail loves dogs. I mean we really love dogs, but in most cases we have absolutely no say on whether or not they are allowed on a particular section of trail. The Ridge Trail is hosted by our many park and open space partners. We must adhere to whatever guidelines those partners request. Most often the restrictions are to protect resources and wildlife. We all want that, right?
