Doudy Draw 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.
Dogs must be leashed seasonally on the upper section of the Doudy Draw Trail south of Community Ditch Trail and west of the Flatirons Vista Trails because of black bear activity.
Equestrians are allowed on all trails in the Doudy Draw area. Off-trail riding is not allowed in the Spring Brook Loop area and Eldorado Mountain Habitat Conservation Area (HCA), and is discouraged in other areas to protect rare plants and wildlife habitat. Learn more about riding your horse on OSMP.
Black bears and mountain lions inhabit this area. Many other wildlife species are common including birds of prey, mule deer and coyotes. Songbirds are active along the riparian (stream side) corridor.
