Ever since the Buffalo Run I haven't been wanting to spend much time pounding the pavement. In fact, I'd nearly rather go to the gym than run on the road. I decided to see if there were any dog friendly trails near me, so what did I do? I Googled it, of course! Being that a lot of the Wasatch is a watershed, dogs aren't allowed on a lot of trails*. Now, I already knew that Mill Creek Canyon is a great place to take dogs. On odd numbered days they can even be off leash. However, today was the 10th and I really wanted to take Ozzy with me (I very much dislike running on trails with him on leash) so I opted to check out Parley's Historic Nature Park, which starts at Tanner Park. It was a nice little trail, and Ozzy had a blast running around with all the other dogs there. It's not the kind of place you could get a long run in, but it was perfect for a quick run. I'm sure I'll go back again.
