For anyone unfamiliar, Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular for good reason: it has loads of natural beauty from the towering peaks of Half Dome and El Capitan (also some of the most popular climbing spots in the country) all the way down to the crystalline waters of Mirror Lake, not to mention everything in between. And while it may be semi-restrictive when it comes to dogs, there are still plenty of activities and areas to check out. With some planning and a little determination, Yosemite can be an ideal destination for adventure for both you and your canine companion.
Yosemite might not be outfitted head to toe with dog-friendly trails, but that doesn't mean you won't find some fun for you and your tails. Between the expansive road system, fire roads, dog-appropriate trails, campgrounds, viewpoints and other well-developed areas, you can still experience much of the majesty Yosemite has to offer on foot and paw or by car, through the lens or just the naked eye.
