As the southern entrance to Yosemite, Madera County has dog-friendly hotels, wineries and restaurants, and dog-friendly outdoor activities including hiking and biking.
Tuolumne County is a mecca for outdoor adventure that you and your pup can enjoy together. Hiking, biking, fishing, river rafting, camping, gold panning, skiing and sightseeing are all on the list.
Mariposa County includes a range of landscapes and a heritage of historic sites and towns. Stunning scenery, outdoor attractions and rich history make for one of California’s most popular year-round vacation destinations for you and your four-legged companion.
One of our greatest national treasures,Yosemite National Park is surrounded by dog-friendly destinations, often called the "gateway" counties.
There are many ways to get to the High Sierra, all of them scenic, some a little more leisurely and winding than others. If time permits and you like lots of diversion on a road trip, follow the Golden Chain Highway (aka Highway 49) south through Amador, Calaveras, Tuolumne and Mariposa counties before cutting east through Yosemite National Park and taking Highway 20 (the Tioga Road) up and over 9,943-foot Tioga Pass. more »
We’re all familiar with giant sequoias, those massive, awe-inspiring sentinels of the forest found only on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada. The most famous groves (Mariposa and Grant) are in Yosemite and Sequoia national parks, respectively—and unfortunately, dogs are not welcome on the trails leading through them. But hark! We’ve sniffed out some alternative stands of High Sierra sequoias where DogTrekkers can wander and wonder at will with a four-legged friend at their side. more »
There is plenty to see as you and your four-legged companion wander through rugged Tuolumne County toward the Big Oak Flat entrance to Yosemite National Park. more »
While visiting Yosemite National Park might be the goal, a trip through the region is also about the journey. It would be a shame to arrive at the park’s Highway 140 (El Portal) entrance without having paused to explore Mariposa County along the way. Start in the town of Mariposa, the historic county seat, with breakfast at Jantz Bakery or lunch at the delightful Deli Garden Café. more »
Yes, you can and should have your dog tag along on your next visit to Yosemite National Park, even though park rules restrict canine companions almost exclusively to campgrounds and paved roads and trails. There’s enough to see (and sniff) for both of you to stay engaged for least a couple of days—and this winter’s heavy precipitation brings the added advantage of budding greenery and gushing waterfalls. more »
