Kirsten’s dog Heidi: “I love it when the pack goes skiing on the K9 trail because I get to come! I get to cast aside my leash and explore and run hard and stick my nose way down in the deep fluffy snow beside the trail. But today was extra special. Today was the best day ever. The sun was out, the wildlife was out, the snow was perfect, and the air was SOOO clean. Can we go again tomorrow?”
The Telemark K9 trails are across the road from the main parking lot. There is a 3.5 km classic & skate ski trail and 2 stunning 3 km snowshoe trails (turn sharp right at the trail head). Everything on that side of the road is off-leash dog territory. The humans require a season pass or trail day pass ($5.00 at the lodge or use the drop box at the trail head).
The trails are well marked for both clockwise and counter clockwise travel. No need to bag your pet’s business but please flick it off the trail.
Note that you don’t need a canine companion to use these trails and they are really fantastic trails. The snowshoe trails are amongst the best on our property.
Grandpa Bob says
we discovered these trails last year and now they are our among favorite trails at Telemark, particularly when the ski trail has been freshly groomed.
