Dog Friendly hike in Park City - Round Valley

For a Monday night hike we will head up to Park City. This event is in conjunction with Utah Outdoors. Pick one to RSVP on, not both. This hike does have a cap, so please update your RSVP if you can't go so others can take your place.

Meetup location: 3900 S. Wasatch Blvd. We will meet at 6:00pm and leave at 6:10pm

Driving Directions to trail head: On I-80, turn south at Silver Creek Junction (towards Heber). At the second exit (about 3 miles later) turn right towards Park City on Kearns Blvd (Highway 248). Less than 1/4 mile from the exit, turn right at the light onto Round Valley Drive. Quickly turn left onto Gilmor Way. Follow it around (pass the first parking lot) and veer north. You'll pass parking lots on your right. Quinn's TH is across Gilmor Way. 

Description of hike: This trail is an easy, 5mi loop hike that gains only 500ft elevation. The trail is wide with no shade or water for the dogs. You see nice views of the East side of the Wasatch mountains. Beware of mountain bikers.

Dogs: allowed off leash. Bring PLENTY of water. I suggest 1 liter per dog.

What to bring: plenty of water, hat

    Peter is spot on. It will be Monday late and much fewer bikers than normal. There's allot of cool bikers but every once in a while . . . There's also allot of trails to choose from to avoid any traffic. My rogues are off leash as well, but I stop them for bikes and we've never had any issues. It will be great weather for a hike with the pups. If anyone gives us grief we'll just have Marengo's little pup sit on 'em :-)

    Round Valley is most definitely not an off-leash area, please be aware you 'could' be fined. There is a small off-leash dog park near the trailhead that you may be thinking of (though it's a pretty lame dog park). Round Valley is quite popular with mountain bikes, trail runners, and hikers, so if you go off-leash, please be prepared to control/leash your dog when encountering trail users. This has become a very contentious issue at Round Valley. I let mine off and risk it, but always am ready to leash them if other people or pets approach. Just an FYI :-)

      do they check more often in summer?? I xc ski up there in winter all the time with my dog off leash, and have never heard of this. I always see people with their dogs off leash.

      I think they go up there in 'spurts', probably based on complaints. Most people are pretty liberal with leash requirements, but some owners don't seem to 'get it.' There are people who are afraid of dogs, their kids, are, or someone elses leashed dog is aggressive and shouldn't be approached. Which is why my M.O. is to let mine be free, but leash him up when others approach. I wouldn't stress about it, but just be aware that it's definitely not an official 'off leash' area, but some people treat it as such :-)
