Only 3 dogs are permitted to be walked by one individual at a time, and all dogs must be licensed, healthy, and be current on all distemper, parvo, and rabies shots. Dogs must be well mannered, under their owner's control, and remain on the trails at all times. Dogs are not allowed in the wetlands or streams.
