The SNO-PARK program provides winter recreation at locations along the Sierra Nevada. Distinctive brown highway signs located along highways identify the SNO-PARKs.
Each SNO-PARK provides visitors access to snow-cleared parking lots and sanitation facilities. Snow conditions determine accessibility and opportunities available at each site.
SNO-PARKs are open seasonally between November 1st and May 30th. Visitors are required to display a parking permit for each vehicle parked at a SNO-PARK.
Help us keep this trail beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules as they may have changed
• If in off-leash area, keep your dog under voice command
• Respect and protect wildlife and habitats
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints
While DogTrekker regularly updates off-leash rules, it is important to check to be sure that this area still allows voice control prior to removing your dog’s leash.
