If you take your furry companion hiking this September, be sure to bring a leash. Dogs are required to be on leash at all times on all Town trails.
Leashes are important safety tools to prevent your pet from chasing wildlife, disturbing other trail users, or confronting another dog. Although your dog might be a well-mannered and polite pup, not all dogs will react the same way. Having a dog off leash can create a lot of anxiety for other dogs, who are on leash, and create an unsafe environment. A dog who is not restrained can also make other trail users uncomfortable.
Please do your part to maintain the best trail etiquette in Snowmass Village, and leash your dog. Failing to do so will result in a fine.
