The forested community of Canyon is between Moraga and Oakland in the Bay Area. Although it's between densely populated areas, this small town offers access to several open spaces and parks. There are a few veterinary clinics just over three miles from here in Moraga.
You and your fur-baby can go hiking among the trees at Redwood Regional Park. This 1,830-acre property has meadows and a vast forested space. There are camping areas, picnic facilities, and over 40 miles of trails here. Pups can join you, provided they're secure and under control. Pick up your pet's droppings.
Take your special pal to Lafayette Reservoir Recreation Area, about ten miles to the north. Dogs secured on a lead no longer than six feet can be here with you. The facility offers hiking trails, open space, a picnic area, and boating. Keep your pup out of the water and remove any messes.
Another furrific facility to visit with Spot is Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve. The primary staging area is about four miles northwest of town on Skyline Boulevard. Pick one of the many trails to climb Round Top for panoramic views of the surrounding areas. Dogs are welcome and can be off-leash in designated parts of the park.
Canyon is near some pet-friendly recreational spaces that you can visit with your pooch.
