    i thought i'd pick some of your brains as to where some of the top dog-friendly hikes in Colorado might be...

    there are tons of hikes that i want to do in rocky mountain national park, but they don't allow dogs on the trails so i never end up doing any of them...

    so i'm looking for some great hiking suggestions that people have taken there dogs on in Colorado that end with a great waterfall, lake, or glacier...most all 13ers and 14ers are dog friendly, but i'm looking more of getting a list together of non-summit hikes

    St. Mary's Glacier is always good, except for it's over popularity now

    i hear there are many lakes in the Guanella pass region, and i'm sure there's gotta be some great hikes in the Indian peaks wilderness...maybe in the Never Summer range?
