I'm visiting home for a couple of weeks this winter season and was hoping to get a quick trip in. I'm hoping to do 8-10 miles day with 1-2 nights camping, but I'm having a tough time figuring out which parks/forests have dog friendly trails...I've been running into a lot of areas where dogs are not permitted on trails and aren't allowed outside of recreational areas or the designated campground.
I'll be in the SoCal area, but I am open to driving up North more, so I'd like to hear all my options. So far, the San Gorgonio wilderness looks promising, although I'm not sure if I can secure a permit on such short notice.
The hiking/camping with a dog thing is pretty new for me, and it's been fantastic so far, but I was pretty bummed to learn that they are not permitted on the trails of any of the national parks. That threw out J-tree for me :/
