    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

Kayenta on the South Rim

This photo was taken at Grand Canyon National Park in Grand Canyon, AZ, US. Kayenta received a lot of complements in 2016 walking around the South Rim paved trail where dogs are allowed. But you can also park off the road and hike on a non-paved trail to Shoshone Point on the South Rim with dogs. As long as there is not a reserved event out there, you are allowed to hike the dirt path with your dog and enjoy the amazing overlook there with rest room and picnic tables. She loved it!
