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.

If you haven’t tried snowshoeing, what are you waiting for? You don’t have to invest in your own equipment if you’re new to the activity. Snowshoes are available for rent from most ski shops; all you need are some warm snow boots. On designated trails with packed snow and flat terrain, walking in snowshoes is almost as easy as walking in street shoes. more »

Of course you can take your dog swimming in Lake Tahoe! True, dogs aren't welcome everywhere, but that's not to say that canine-friendly splash spots don't exist.  You’ll have to rise and shine with the early birds to snag a parking spot along Highway 28 south of Incline Village, but your efforts will pay off when you find a trail leading to a pocket cove with soft white sand, crystal-clear water and sensuously sculpted rocks where you can hang out for the morning or the day. more »
