As Canada’s largest national park with more than 600 miles of trails, there is also a long rich cultural and natural history to explore in addition to spectacular landscapes that support a large variety of animal, bird, and plant life. It is also 1 of the 4 national parks that make up the Rocky Mountain World Heritage Site. Dogs are allowed throughout the park, on the tram, and in the camp areas for no additional fee. They suggest visitors with pets to stop by the visitor center to get a trail map brochure because there are several trails where dogs are not allowed due to the wildlife. Especially worthy of visiting is the Athabasca Glacier where leashed dogs may walk the short distance to the glacier from the parking area or on the longer trails. Dogs may not be left unattended outside at any time, and their food has to be brought in at night. Dogs must be under their owner’s control, leashed, and cleaned up after. There are 10 campgrounds with a total of 1,172 sites offering varied services. Restrooms, showers, and dump stations are available in many locations. There is only 1 winter campground, located at Wapiti. The camping and tent areas also allow dogs. There is a dog walk area at the campground. There are no water hookups at the campgrounds.

Top 200 Places: Parc de la Chute-Montmorency (Quebec City Canada)

Parc de la Chute-Montmorency
2490, avenue Royale
Beauport,
Quebec G1C 1S1
418-663-3330

This 270 foot waterfall is actually higher than its more famous cousin at Niagara. You and your leashed dog may take a cablecar ride up to the top of the falls, take a short 1/4 mile walk to the falls and walk across a narrow bridge at the head of the falls. There is a great view from the bridge. Dogs on leash are allowed on the cablecar and at all outdoor areas and trails in the park. This was definitely a highlight of our most recent trip to the area.
