Yellowknife Dog Walking Areas

OFF LEASH AREAS

Yellowknife Dog Park
The first and only fenced, safe, off-leash park for dogs in the NWT is located behind the Yellowknife Curling Club.
Directions: Park between the swimming pool and arena. The access road is to the right of the arena and will lead you to the park. You will see the fenced area. Please remember to clean up after your dog.

Yellowknife Ski Club
This area is somewhat swampy in places but it has beautiful views. This area is for use only in the summer. It is located on the Ingraham Trail, approximately 1 km from the Explorer Hotel.
Directions: The ski club is across from the Yellowknife Landfill on Highway 4. It's well marked with signs. 
Please remember to clean up after your dog.

Tin Can Hill
Open multi-use area. Be aware of snowmobilers, cyclists, other off-leash dogs and broken glass. It is located just off of School Draw Ave.
Directions: Drive down 49th street towards school draw. At the corner of School Draw turn right into a dead end. There is a dirt road leading up the hill which is the off-leash area.
Please remember to clean up after your dog.

Sand Pits
This open area is used by many. The area is mostly sand with a rocky area and small but deep ponds. Be watchful of snowmobilers, dirt bikes, off road cars and trucks,  other  off-leash dogs, and horseback riders. It is located about 3 km west of the airport. This area is also known habitat of wolves and coyotes. Be alert.
Directions:  From the airport drive approximately 3 km, on the left there will be a sign for YK Shooting range, turn in there, park
. Please remember to clean up after your dog.

AREAS REQUIRING A LEASH

Range Lake Trail
This 1.2 km trail is regularly groomed and maintained community trail. It has multiple users at any given time, enjoying the lake views, bird-watching and sight-seeing. It is well marked and follows a pebbled path with wooden bridges, flat rock and boulders. It is located in the Range Lake Area.
Directions: Can be accessed from Rivett Crescent or from Parker Park Ball diamonds. Dogs must be leashed.
Please remember to clean up after your dog.

Prelude Lake Trail
This trail takes you through an incredible nature hike through flat sand, high rock and bush. Lots of climbing through rock areas to incredible views of Prelude Lake. Make sure to wear hikers as it takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. Garbage cans are available at the entrance only. It is not very well used but dogs should be leashed as there are bears in the area. Please make sure you and your dog are wearing bear bells! It is located on the Ingraham Trail
Directions: Drive north on Ingraham Trail for about 30 minutes. Turn left into Prelude Lake park, it is well marked with a large sign. Drive to the first parking lot - one surrounded by a wood fence. There is a map in that area of the trail and it is well marked - just keep your eyes peeled for the markers because there are a couple of tricky spots.
Please remember to clean up after your dog.

Frame Lake Trail
This groomed trail surrounds Frame Lake. Dogs shouldn't swim in this lake though as there is a high risk of infection. This paved and bush trail is highly populated. Garbage cans are few and far between but are available near City Hall, the pool and the hospital.
Directions: Many accesses available - across from the Coop Grocery Store, behind the pool, city hall, the museum and Gitzel Street. Dogs must be leashed. Please remember to clean up after your dog.

Niven Lake Trail
This is a very nice nature trail around a wetland area with many kinds of waterfowl and other birds. Do not let your dog chase birds or go in the water. Garbage cans available at the two entrances. This is a highly populated residential area near  Highway 4 with lots of dogs in backyards.
Directions: Drive Highway 4 toward the ski hill. The parking area is near a chain-link fence just past the Nova Hotel Parking lot. It is not well marked but you will see a wooded bridge which is near the parking area.
Please remember to clean up after your dog.
