2) Stop by one of the pet-friendly places to grab a drink: The Barrel, Rock Cut Brewing Company, Avant Garde Aleworks or Lumpy Ridge Brewing.
3) Hike Lily Mountain, just six miles south of Estes Park.
4) Check out the Estes Valley Dog Park on the shores of Lake Estes.
5) Visit Trendz downtown, where pets can come inside to pick out a toy or treat for themselves!
