You And Your Four-Legged Friend Will Go Mutts For These Pet-Friendly Hiking Trails In New Mexico
This February, make your four-legged, fuzzy friend your valentine. February 20 is National Love Your Pet Day and what better way to show them your love than with a brisk hike? Gear up your dog (or cat) and get ready to hit one of these pet-friendly hiking trails.
While you’re out on the trail, don’t forget to follow the Leave No Trace Principles. This includes making sure your pet doesn’t disturb wildlife and remembering to pick up any waste they leave. And don’t forget to bring a snack and water for them too.
