    No dogs below rim! Used the kennel on grounds.

    Thank you for having a kennel on the grounds. Therefore, I was able to go day hike with family below the rim while my dogs stayed in their kennel in the morning.

    Epic Road trip

    Limited Access... No Trails

    You can not take your dog on any trail in the park. Dogs must be leashed in visitor centers. They may not go inside any buildings. There is limited water.

    Lots of places to walk

    You can venture anywhere with your dog above the rim. Great for dogs as long as they are leashed.

    Amazing

    We've visited the Grand Canyon several times with our pack, and it's always serene and beautiful. Just remember some basic safety tips. Always carry lots of water for both you and your pups. And go early in the morning before it gets too hot for the dogs. Have fun!

    Walking the rim

    Great walking my dog along the rim. No, you can't go hiking down the canyon, but that was OK for us. Just keep your dog on the short leash if they chase squirrels, you are right near the edge at places! Also very handicap accessible
