Long Description:
Buddy, a collie, belonged to the family of Trail Manager Herlon Pierce. Buddy's Place was created in August of 2004 as a place to honor people's special pets. It is highlighted by a memorial wall which holds plaques that can be purchased and inscribed with a personal tribute to your pet. A portion of each plaque sold will be donated to the local animal shelter.

Buddy's Place contains a rainbow bridge which takes you into a landscaped area filled with an assortment of plants and trees. Another area of Buddy's Place is provided for your living pets. It contains a pet comfort station which includes a drinking fountain and a cooling shower designed to accommodate your pets after a long walk on the trail. There is even a fireplug in place to provide a target of relief for your companion. Buddy's Place is located next to the restroom facility close to the Gateway Trailhead.
