I’ve been exploring all the great things Meridian,Eagle, Kuna, and Star have to offer and I’ve discovered there are a lot of places you can take your fur babies. With the weather warming up I’ve taken our pup Theo out more and am always looking for new places to explore with him. Dog are family too, right? Check out this list, if you know of someplace I missed please let me know.
We’re so fortunate to have so many places that offer dog friendly hikes in The Treasure Valley. Please make sure to clean up after your pet and follow the rules and guidelines for each trail.
The Military Reserve has lots of off leash trails you can take your beloved pup on, as long as he/she is well-behaved and under voice control.
Ridge to Rivers Trails throughout the Treasure Valley - I feel like there endless trails you can take your pooch on using the Ridge to Rivers Trail map. Check out this link for both off-leash and on-leash trails.
Table Rock- This trail is under 4 miles, but the view is amazing. I can’t wait to take my pup here. I’ve heard it can get pretty busy so I need to wait until my sweet puppy is a little better mannered around lots of dogs. He thinks everyone is playmates!
Shafer Butte- I haven’t hiked this trail yet, but I’ve heard the views are amazing. It’s up near Bogus Basin, so also a bit cooler in the heat of summer. Leashed dogs are allowed on these trails.
Miller Gulch- Look forward to another hike full of beautiful views. Leashed dogs are allowed on this trail.
