Flatirons Vista 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 Trailhead because of black bear activity.
Equestrians are allowed on all trails in the Flatirons Vista area. Off-trail riding is not allowed in the Spring Brook Loop area or the 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.
Coyotes, songbirds, birds of prey, mule deer, and bobcats are common year round. Bears can be sighted spring through fall. Bluebirds may gather here in the spring. Watch for golden and bald eagles overhead in the winter.
