If Taking Your Dog Along

Please note that not all hikes are suitable for dogs. First and foremost, determine if the place you are going hiking permits their presence. Then, determine the difficulty of the hike and your dog's abilities. A good rule of thumb is that anything over 2.5 hours or is rated moderate to difficult and higher is not worth taking a chance on your dog's health.

Ensure your dog is allowed in the area - there are many park areas where dogs are not allowed, or must be on a leash at all times.
