Pets are NOT permitted on any park trails. They are allowed in Juniper campground and the parking lot in front of the visitor center. All pets must be under physical restraint while in the park. Remember, pets may not be left unattended except in a vehicle. Please be sure animals are provided adequate ventilation. Pets should never be left in a closed vehicle during hot weather. Pets are not permitted on the shuttle bus from White Rock that runs in the summer. Service animals are allowed everywhere their owners go. Idenfication on service dogs is very much appreciated (so other visitors don't wonder why your dog can go on the trail but theirs can't) but not required.

Mule deer fawns only keep their spots for the first several months of life. These spots provide camouflage for the young animals when their mothers must leave them to feed.
