Muskrat Run Nature Trail in St. Vrain State Park is an easy dog and ADA accessible hike a short drive from Boulder, Denver and Fort Collins. The park says "the Muskrat Run Nature Trail circles Sandpiper Pond and is about one mile in length. Here you will find picnic shelters on the north side of Sandpiper Pond, while the cattails and tall reeds rustle in the wind along the east. Fishing piers are available for the avid fisherman and don't be surprised if you observe one of our many muskrats trying to steal your fish off the line!" There is camping available in St. Vrain State Park.
