2019 brings off-leash changes to Blackmer Trail

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The city of Steamboat Springs wants to remind readers that Blackmer Trail will move from being an off-leash area to requiring leashes at all times.

On Jan. 1, Blackmer Trail was removed from the off-leash areas across the city available to dog owners.  The change was made during a Steamboat Springs City Council meeting Sept. 4.  A replacement area for Blackmer is under consideration and is anticipated to be approved during the first half of 2019.

Currently, there are two off-leash parks and three trial off-leash areas for dog lovers to let pets roam free. Rita Valentine Park and Spring Creek Park at the Lower Pond are the city’s two primary off-leash dog parks.  In addition, three off-leash trial areas — Butcherknife, Lower Spring Creek near Steamboat Springs High School  and Whistler Park — also provide room for pets to go off-leash.

Additional information and maps highlighting the dog parks and off-leash trial areas can be found at steamboatsprings.net/offleash.
