Dogs on trails
On May 9th, the Merced News published an article title “Outdoors: A trail guide for a walk on the wild side.” Nice article but what caught my attention was the bit about “A reader recently asked if I could recommend some campgrounds with a surprisingly difficult combination of features: easy day hike trails adjacent to the campsties that allow hikers to bring along their dogs.”
The author acknowledged about the only place to do this was in national forests. Okay, the acknowledgement was indirect by admitting dogs aren’t permitted on trails in nation and California state parks then listing place it could be done. But what a great reason to passby national and state parks and discover, along with your best buddy, a national forest near you.
FYI: The author identified five trails in four national forests relatively close to Merced, California but there are lots more possibility. Check them out by going to ForestCamping.com and than the forest’s web page. We have noted the hiking trails adjacent to the campground under the Hiking heading on each campground’s Description. Looking for more? Go to the forest’s website via the Helpful Links drop-down menu at the top of each forest web page on our website. A comprehensive listing is under their Recreation tab.
