Traveling the national parks like Yosemite with your dog can be an incredible vacation and create the trip of a lifetime. Sharing these incredible landmarks with your four-legged friend will be a special experience, but it does take some planning. Many areas are off-limits to dogs in order to protect wildlife and delicate natural features.

Yosemite National Park is one of the most spectacular areas to go for a dog walk. Luckily, there are many areas and campgrounds that allow dogs on their walkways and trails. Make sure you plan ahead and read up on the best dog-friendly spots so you have a plan before you get to a trail-head. With the abundance of natural wonders available, you're certain to find dog-friendly attractions that will not only stretch your dog's legs, but take your breath away in the process. The abundant mountains, vistas, and waterfalls at Yosemite National Park will make for a trip you and your pup won't soon forget.

Yosemite National Park has trails for all kinds of adventures. The park service even has trails designated for dogs. Most of the trails that allow dogs are along paved trails, which is perfect for families with small children and strollers or even adults who prefer an easier and more uniform place to walk while still enjoying stunning views.

While you may notice that many of Yosemite's trails are off limits to dogs, it's not to be mean or exclusive. Many of these trails are home to many different species of wildlife, and keeping dogs off these trails means less stress caused by barking, chasing or lunging dogs. Many of the park's biggest attractions are open to your four-legged friend and you won't feel like you're missing anything. Just be sure to always keep your dog on a leash on the dog-friendly walkways to keep him safe and the other tourists and wildlife happy.

The Bridalveil Trail is one of the most spectacular Yosemite dog walks you can do in the park. This trail is one of the first you'll encounter as you enter the park and leads to the incredible Bridalveil Fall, a waterfall that plunges nearly 620 feet down to the bottom of the valley. This waterfall is known for its ethereal mists and stunning views. The trail is paved all the way to the base of the waterfall from the parking lot and is a perfect first dog walk in Yosemite. 

For a bit more adventure you can head up to Mirror Lake via the Mirror Lake Trail. This is a two-mile round trip walk on a paved trail (dogs are not allowed off the paved trail) up to Mirror Lake. Though this lake doesn't often hold water year-round, it is a perfect place to spot all kinds of wildlife including deer, coyotes, and even bobcats.
