Big Basin Redwoods State Park

Big Basin Redwoods State Park is California's oldest state park and is home to the largest span of old-growth Redwoods south of San Francisco. Leashed dogs are allowed in the campsites, picnic areas, and on paved roads. They must be on a leash and attended at all times. Dogs are also allowed on North Escape, a 2.5-mile one-way (5-mile round trip) paved road that is mostly gated off to cars and alongside old-growth redwoods, a creek, and lush undergrowth. Dog owners can check out Big Basin's official website for information on day-use and camping fees. Dogs are not permitted on any of the trails or fire roads excluding the campground connector trail from Sempervirens and Blooms Creek campgrounds to park headquarters. Dogs are not allowed in any portion of the Rancho del Oso area, or on Waddell State Beach. Visit Website

    Most of Big Basin Redwoods State Park burned in the 2020 CZU Complex Fire. All of the trails are closed until further notice. There are a few dog-friendly trails at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park a few miles south of Big Basin on Highway 9 near Felton.
