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.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
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.
