Are dogs allowed on the Eagle Cliff trails?

Dogs are welcome on designated snowshoe trails at Eagle Cliff and the Sunny Meadow trail

Please ensure safety for skiers and dogs and leash your dog if necessary. Keep your dog under control to avoid collisions when dogs are in the direct path of skiers traveling downhill. Such collisions have happened at Eagle Cliff causing injury to skiers. 

Skier safety is a top priority for the trails. Dog tracks have the potential to disrupt relatively smooth ski track flow and compromise skier safety, so they are only welcome on designated snowshoe trails and the Sunny Meadow trail. 

Which Eagle Cliff trails are designated as snowshoe trails?

Hollow, Holey Rock, Lily Park, and Hamburger are designated as snowshoe trails at Eagle Cliff. Lost Run Trail is designated as both a ski trail and a snowshoe trail.
