What better way to enjoy the mountains for bipeds and quadrupeds alike than by being out on a hike? In Mariposa County’s scenic Merced River Canyon, several dog friendly recreation areas exist including the Merced River Hike at the Briceburg Recreation Area.

Also in this area, you will access the dog-friendly Briceburg Hike toward Yosemite and the Briceburg Hiking Trail West. Dogs are welcome on leashes at Briceburg. A little further to the west in the Yosemite gateway community of Mariposa is the Stockton Creek Preserve, a dog-friendly nature preserve with miles of trail to navigate ranging from easy to difficult.
