With over 1,000 acres of beautiful gardens secluded groves, lakes, and trails you have a variety of options to choose from. Whether you are heading out for a nice trail run with your pup or a meandering stroll, take a look at a map and you'll find the perfect path.

Dog Walking in Golden Gate Park San Francisco is one of the best urban park walks you and your dog can experience in the country. The park stretches three miles from east to west and one-half mile north to south. Inside you'll find gravel trails, grassy meadows, lakes, and many cultural and historic sites to explore.

It's important to know that not all areas are open to dogs including the athletic fields and picnic areas, and most of the open meadow areas require you to have your dog on a leash. Still, there are three designated off-leash dog areas with plenty of space to let Fido run and play with other furry friends. Another area you'll want to check out is the all-sand dog training area. This fenced part of the park is the perfect spot to work on obedience before you hit the trail or try more advanced tricks with exposure to distractions.

One of the first places to check out is the Golden Gate Dog Training area, a fenced off spot at 38th Avenue and Fulton Street. Here you can double check your voice commands and make sure your pup is ready to listen with all kinds of distractions. Once you know you have good control and command of your dog, try out one of the other amazing, but un-fenced off-leash areas. Though each area may not be as expansive as other dog parks in the city, just being able to let your pup run free in the middle of Golden Gate Park is an incredible experience. You can even link up one or two of the parks along your walk to vary the terrain and stimulation. Just be sure you stay aware of your surroundings. Because these areas are not fenced off, it can be easy to miss the point where you need to put the leash back on for the rest of your walk.
