Dog friendly hikes, beaches and parks in California

A project to develop comprehesive outdoors resources for dogs and their owners.
Starting with San Francisco Bay Area.

Map of Dog Friendly Hikes

There are many amazing dog friendly hikes in the Bay Area. Click on map icons below to see trail maps and more information. I have reviewed some parks (and more to come) while others have links to park websites. Directions work best on a mobile device. Scroll down to see featured hikes and recommended dog-friendly beaches. Remember to give us some feedback in the comments. The map might not work perfectly on smaller mobile devices – we are working on it.

    Calero is totally NOT dog friendly. Their website says dogs are allowed, then you get to the park and you find out dogs are only allowed in the parking lot: ALL trails are closed to dogs. Not mentioned here is Santa Teresa County Park, which has 36 miles of trails ALL open to dogs on leash! The only place dogs can’t go is in the little farm/ranch area.
