Pets

DOGS:

Dogs are allowed everywhere on the Trail except in three areas:

  • Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee and North Carolina
  • Trailside Museum and Wildlife Center in Bear Mountain State Park, New York
  • Baxter State Park, Maine

Dogs must be leashed on the forty percent of the Trail that uses National Park Service-administered lands - though we recommend that you keep your dog leashed, particularly to protect you and your dog in the event of an unexpected encounter with wildlife.

PACK ANIMALS:

Pack animals are NOT allowed on the trail. This includes horses, donkeys, llamas and alpacas.
