We all know that Yosemite National Park is a great destination for you and your dog to visit, but an even better destination is Mariposa County, the home to Yosemite National Park.
 
The current travel climate makes getting into and planning your trip to Yosemite a bit more challenging. New restrictions make having a day-use pass or over-night stay in Yosemite a must for you and your dog. But have no fear, Mariposa County is a great and safe way to get you and your pup into the mountains for a weekend escape.

DogTrekker's Maya at Ruthie's Cabin, Nick's Cove

In Maya’s first trip since early March to the coast, she and her uprights stayed at Nick’s Cove in Marshall, Marin County, on beautiful Tomales Bay.

The Nick’s team has been trained in visitor protection while maintaining the guest experience they have always offered humans and pets. Everything was touchless from check-in to ordering to check-out. Staff, guests and visitors all wore face coverings during our recent stay.
 
While the Nick’s Cove Restaurant is closed inside, the outside dining area along the pier is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, having a cocktail as the sun goes down or watching the kids and dogs frolic in the bay. more »

OK, COVID-19 cost us some waterfall viewing time during their March/April peak flows, but the many waterfalls within an easy drive of where you are staying in Redding are still flowing.

For a quick taste, visit Hedge Creek Falls in Dunsmuir. It’s right off Interstate 5 via a short path, has a generous parking lot, a viewing platform for photo opps and a cave beneath the falls for sensory thrills (your dog may or may not want to go there, so be alert!) more »
