California's largest state park consumes 600,000 mountainous acres, or about one-fifth of San Diego County. It's famous for the spring wildflower bloom, the rugged landscapes and clear skies. As at most state parks, however, dogs are not permitted on trails. They are allowed in campgrounds and picnic areas, provided they are leashed or restrained and picked up after.
Advice from DogTrekker: Don't be discouraged from visiting the park because of the restrictions. Even a half-day motor tour is rewarding, especially in winter and spring.
