    Dogs are allowed on the beach at trail one and trail six .... technically they should be on a leash, but this is often not enforced...

    You can have them on a leash on the trails.

    I live in San Clemente and San Onofre state beach does not allow dogs on the beach.

    You can have them on a leash on the trails.

    lots of dogs

    We took a trip to this beach with our boston. There were lots of dogs, someone had set out a free box of balls for them, there was a wash station to rinse your dog, two trails we didn't go to. Really the only draw backs were that the beach is a bit rocky, the undertow is strong for little doggies that like to swim, and it was $15 to get a park pass not bad really.

    on leash

    Some of us dog owners prefer the on-leash attractions because other dogs have looked at my sweet little dog as a snack.

    very hard to get up and down

    Very long and steep hill to go to the beach and to come back from the beach

    "On Leash" is not Dog Friendly

    I can't believe your site doesn't differentiate between on-leash and off-leash dog beaches. To me, "on-leash" dog friendly beach is oxymoronic. There's nothing dog-friendly about a beach that forces owners and dogs to remain tethered together. We are desperately looking for weekend getaway options that include legitimate off-leash, dog friendly beaches, but your site makes them very hard to find.
