Guidelines for dog owners visiting Olympic National Park.
Bag your pets poop
Pet owners are responsible for removing pet waste from all areas in the park including campground, picnic areas, parking lots, roads, pet-friendly trails and other developed areas.
Always wear a leash
Pets must be restrained on a leash no longer than 6 feet.
Pets can harass or harm wildlife by making noise or scaring wildlife away.
Know where you can go
Pets are allowed on the following trails;
Peabody Creek Trail
Rialto Beach parking lot to Ellen Creek (1/2 mile)
The beaches between the Hoh and Quinault Reservations
Madison Falls Trail
Spruce Railroad Trail
Pets are not permitted - on any trails not listed above, in public buildings, on interpretive walks, or in the wilderness.
Additionally pets are welcome in campgrounds and picnic areas as well as paved or dirt roads, but no digging or rolling on plants as that will damage vegetation.
Pets should not be left unattended. Also summer heat poses a threat to pets left in vehicles.
Certified guide animals are an exception to these rules and may accompany their owner to all park locations.
