The Private Campground Advantage

If pit toilets and DIY tent camping in general aren’t your style, you may find your bliss at one of California’s hundreds of private campgrounds. They range from family-friendly KOAs (Kampgrounds of America), with their swimming pools, playgrounds, camping cabins and dog parks; to luxury “glamping” resorts like AutoCamps in Guerneville and Santa Barbara, where DogTrekkers can overnight in shiny Airstream trailers. And there are many choices in between. more »

A Fine Find in Gold Country

The Sierra Nevada foothills, with their quaint, Gold Rush-era towns and growing portfolio of wineries, are a joy to explore with a four-legged companion. If you’re seeking a particularly scenic place for the two of you to hike (perhaps wine-tasting will come later?), look no farther than the South Yuba River, which froths its winding way through Nevada County and offers many opportunities for bluff-top hiking with occasional descents to idyllic swimming holes. A locals’ favorite is the Hoyt Trail, about seven miles north of Nevada City. more »

Give a Dog a Flume

Give the dog a flumeDogs love clambering over the reconstructed wooden flumes that make the South Yuba River Independence Trail in Nevada County so unique. And it's OK for their people to go slow, as this is truly a trail for all, from wheelchair users to hard-body hikers who use it as a jumping-off point for more strenuous pursuits. Go west from the trailhead for about a mile to encounter the highlight, a 520-foot-long switchback ramp leading to a scenic swimming hole where Rover can splash while you dip your feet. The east branch of the trail features ravine-bridging flumes and dizzying views.
