    Got another dog-permitted trail for you in the state park system:  Rivas Canyon Trail, from Temescal Gateway Park to Will Rogers State Historic Park (most of that is through Topanga State Park), and the Inspiration Point loop trail from Will Rogers.  Temescal Gateway actually isn’t a state park, but it’s only $5 to park there versus $12 (I think) at Will Rogers.

      Are you sure about that?  Topanga State Park website has a notice at the very top of the page that says in red letters:  

      Notice on Dogs:Please note that dogs are not allowed on the park trails, fire roads, or in the back country.http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=629

        Pretty sure. You can call the folks at Will Rogers or Temescal Gateway to be sure. I guess maybe because Will Rogers is an historic park, and Temescal Gateway is not a state park? Or maybe the trail predates the park? Don’t know. But the Rivas Canyon Trail was definitely dog permitted.

    Great pictures as usual, I love the water shaped formation one. Hiking on the beach is always such a great activity. One of the benefits of living in California

    I really don’t understand why dogs can’t be on beaches or in nature. It’s just silly to me. Site the people who are irrsponsible and leave the others to enjoy working out with their pups!

      Pamela–We totally agree. We’d support a very high fine (as high as $500?) for those who refuse to clean up after their dog, and would even support an extra admission fee for dogs ($5?) to pay for extra enforcement. It is maddening when we have a trip like we just returned from in which we were camping with the dog, but could do virtually nothing in Calaveras Big Trees State Park because of the ban. Even the river was off limits to dogs–but a mere five miles or so upstream, at the Sourgrass Recreation Area in the National Forest, dogs were permitted in the exact same river.
