A plus for your dog on the San Pedro River hike is that no leashes are required except at the trailhead and at the San Pedro House terminus, provided your dog responds well to voice commands. Check with the BLM office before heading out about hunting activity in the area—hunting dogs, almost always off-leash, are allowed in the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area.

This trail is an old road which used to go to the farms in the area. For much of the trail, there are signs of the old irrigation system. The trail is not crowded until you approach the San Pedro House close to Highway 90. Most of the trail will leave you alone with your thoughts and the wildlife. The views of the river and the cottonwood trees are beautiful. Walk quietly and you will have the opportunity to see deer and the abundant bird life that the San Pedro River is famous for. This is a nice alternative to the mountain hikes in the area when the weather turns cold.
