Bobolink Area Dog Regulations Map

Learn about bringing your dog to OSMP. Dogs must be on a hand-held leash at all times unless they meet the voice and sight control standard and display a City of Boulder Voice and Sight tag. Dog excrement removal is required by law. A dog station is available to aid in the collection of dog excrement.

Horse Regulations

Allowed on most trails. Off-trail riding is discouraged to protect rare plants and wildlife habitat. Learn more about riding your horse on OSMP.


White-tailed and mule deer are common. Bobolinks and other ground-nesting birds live in the field east of the trail from mid-May through the summer. Please stay on the trail so the birds can display and nest without disturbance. Red-tailed hawks, foxes and coyotes are sometimes seen.
