Thursday, May 17th, 2012


Runyon Canyon Park
Mulholland Hwy
Los Angeles,
California 90046
323-666-5046

From this popular hiking trail and excellent off-leash area you can see views of Hollywood, the Wilshire District, and the skyscrapers of downtown L.A. This park has mostly off-leash and some on-leash hiking trails. It is about a 2 mile round-trip from end to end in the park. The top of the trail is located off Mulholland Hwy (about 2 miles east of Laurel Canyon Blvd) at Desmond Street in the Hollywood Hills. The bottom part of the trail is located at the end of Fuller Ave. Parking is available on the street. The trailhead might be kind of tricky to find from Fuller, but you’ll probably see other people going to or coming from the trail.

Top 200 Places: Acadia National Park

Sunday, May 13th, 2012


Acadia National Park
Eagle Lake Road
Bar Harbor,
Maine
207-288-3338

This National Park ranks high on the tail wagging meter. Dogs are allowed on most of the hiking trails, which is unusual for a national park. There are miles and miles of both hiking trails and carriage roads. Pets are also allowed at the campgrounds, but must be attended at all times. They are not allowed on sand beaches during the summer or on the steeper hiking trails year-round. Pets must be on a 6 foot or less leash at all times. There is one exception to the leash rule. There is an area in the park that is privately owned where dogs are allowed to run leash-free. It is called Little Long Pond and is located near Seal Harbor. Don’t miss the awe-inspiring view from the top of Cadillac Mountain in the park. Overall, this is a pretty popular national park for dogs and their dog-loving owners. There is a $10 entrance fee into the park, which is good for 7 days. You can also purchase an audio tape tour of the Park Loop Road which is a self-guided auto tour. The driving tour is about 27 miles and takes 3 to 4 hours including stops. Audio tapes are available at the Hulls Cove Visitor Center.
