Dog-friendly Yosemite Region

Yosemite Region

Is Yosemite dog-friendly?" That's one of the questions most commonly asked by DogTrekker readers. The answer depends on how "Yosemite" is defined. The famous national park comes immediately to mind, but the rugged Sierra Nevada landscapes that define it don't suddenly end at its borders.

The Yosemite Region, encompassing the three counties (Mariposa, Tuolumne and Madera) that converge in the park, harbors many other places to see and things to do—and it's definitely dog-friendly!

Heads up: you will once again need reservations to visit Yosemite National Park this summer, whether its for day-tripping, camping or lodging. But no big deal, just keep checking on protocols and procedures so you don’t travel all that way just to be locked out.

At any rate, you don’t even need to enter the park to get a eyeful of scenery in Mariposa County, which is bisected by highway 140 leading to the park’s El Portal entrance. more »
