You reach to pet their furry head as you begin mentally planning your next hiking excursion.  Find out the best dog-friendly hiking locations by reading through our guide to ensure you don’t travel to a dog restricted area, and to keep you and your pet safe from dangers on the mountain.


Dogs make exceptional hiking companions. To elevate your hiking experience, please consider the physical shape of your dog, this should determine the appropriate level of your hike. Remember, you could always start on an easy walk, and together work your way up to an intermediate or expert level adventure. If your canine is obedient and socialized, it could be a great way to meet fellow hikers along your path. These hiking locations are great for dogs because they don’t have steep ladders, access to clean water, and give warning to cliffs.
