Dog Friendly Hikes in Flagstaff - Holiday Inn Express Flagstaff Arizona

The Flagstaff landscape provides some of the most gorgeous scenery in Arizona, which sets a perfect backdrop to a variety of challenging and entertaining hiking trails. Whether an avid hiker or a visitor looking for an outdoor activity to take in the sights, and you want to bring along your four-legged best friend, Flagstaff has a variety of options.

Several park trails throughout Flagstaff are dog-friendly, and in most cases, the animals just have to be on a leash or under positive voice control. There are also plenty of snowy roads in the national forest during the winter and you can take your dog out to cross-country ski or go snowshoeing. As with anywhere, however, you must come prepared and clean up after your pet.

If you are planning a trip out to Flagstaff and want to enjoy the great outdoors with your pup, head to one of the following places, where dogs are always welcome.

Wilson Meadow at Hart Prairie

Hike this 2-mile trail with your best little buddy and treat him to a swim on a warm day. The trail opens up to a Wilson Meadow where there is plenty of open space to run and a perfect little pond where dogs can cool off and take a swim.

Griffith Spring Trail

For an easy hike to just enjoy the scenery with your furry friend, take on this loop trail and let your pet play in the spring-fed creek.

Dry Lake Hills

Take in a perfect 5.6-mile hike around the Brookbank and Sunset trails on the Dry Lake Hills and your dog can enjoy a drink or splash at the pond along the way.

Abineau-Bear Jaw Loop

To challenge yourself (and your dog), head to the north side of the San Francisco Peaks to hike this tougher, 7.4-mile trail. Bring plenty of water and enjoy the beautiful Aspens along the hike.

Wherever you decide to hike, make sure you book a stay with a pet-friendly hotel like the Holiday Inn Express Flagstaff so your pooch has a comfortable place to relax after a day out on the trails. Ask your concierge for directions from your hotel to these Flagstaff hiking spots.
