It's important to note that pets are not allowed on some public lands and waterways, and in other areas they must be leashed. Please be respectful of seasonal and year-round laws and posted signage about pets. Also note that dogs can be considered predators (and prey) to some wildlife, so it’s very important to obey all the rules. Also clean up after your pet, and make sure they have enough food and water while you’re out exploring.
