Overview

The welcome mat in our National Park System rolls up when we drive in with our dogs. Very few national parks allow dogs on hiking trails. In Yellowstone National Park dogs are not allowed more than 100 feet from roads, parking areas and campgrounds. In Yosemite National Park dogs can walk the paved paths of the Valley floor but are not permitted on any trail or slope. At the Grand Canyon dogs can walk along the South Rim in developed areas but can not go on any trail below the rim. At Zion National Park dogs are permitted on one mild trail.

This book describes the five best places to vacation with your dog in America's national parks.

Traveling with your dog across the United States can indeed be frustrating for the active dog owner. Many popular destinations such as American national parks do not welcome dogs. But active dog owners don't have to be shut out from America's splendors. Your dog can't trot among the giant saguaro cacti in Arizona's Saguaro National Park but he can hike past the stately sentinels of the desert on the Canyon Loop at nearby Catalina State Park. Dogs will never be able to walk under the greatest collection of natural bridges on earth at Utah's Arches National Park but just down the road dogs are welcome on the Negro Bill Canyon Trail in the Colorado River National Recreation Area that leads to the sixth longest stone arch in the United States. Your dog will never look 1000 feet straight down at the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers in Canyonlands National Park but next door in Dead Horse Point State Park she can look down 1500 feet into the canyon at the Colorado River below.

This book describes nearby alternatives to our most popular national parks that deny access to dogs but where you can gain a similar experience with your dog.

Some of the best places to take your dog in the National Park System are to are the least publicized. Less crowds often mean less anti-dog prohibitions. This book describes some of the best small national par service properties for your dog.

National parks are created with the dual missions of preservation and education. Dogs do not fit easily into that equation. More appropriate destinations across the American landscape for dog owners are the national recreation areas that are lands set aside for boating, hiking, off-roading and more.

This park describes America's best national recreation areas for your dog to enjoy.

As a bonus, DOGGIN' AMERICA'S NATIONAL PARKS, provides a list of rules for dogs in the National Park Service's 100 most visited properties.
