Snowmass Village officials are looking for input on the new Hawk Ridge trail and if it should allow dogs. The new trail is being built behind the Mountain View neighborhood and will make a connection between the South Rim and Mountain View trails. 

Residents of the nearby neighborhood are currently not allowed to have dogs, but the two connecting trails already allow dogs (on leash only.) This is an advisory questionnaire and has just a few short questions.

Responses will be kept anonymous, butthe results and comments will be made public. It can be found at and all responses must be received by June 23.
