Yosemite National Park

Parts of Yosemite National Park are dog friendly. During their visit, dogs must be restrained on a leash no more than six feet in length. Fido is allowed in developed areas, on fully paved roads, sidewalks and bicycle paths (unless otherwise posted). Dogs are also allowed on Wawona Meadow Loop, Chowchilla Mountain Road, Carlon Road from the trailhead to Hodgdon Meadow, on the Old Big Oak Flat Road from Hodgdon Meadow to the Tuolumne Grove parking lot, and on Four Mile and Eleven Mile fire roads. Pets are not allowed on other trails, unplowed roads covered in snow, in undeveloped and wilderness areas, in public buildings or transport, in lodging areas, or in walk-in and group campsites. Yosemite National Park is open all day, year round. Dog owners can check out its official website for information on entrance fees, directions to access points, and Yosemite Valley's dog kennel.

    Gorgeous location but not very dog friendly

    Beautiful park, but dogs not allowed on most trails and big/busy lookout points. It limits what you can do. Big plus is that they are allowed on most paved bike routes.
    They have Bark ranger program with tag for sale.
