Pets are allowed in the picnic areas, parking lots and on paved roads. Your pet must be physically controlled on a six foot leash. Your pet should be with you at all times.

It is prohibited to leave pets unattended in a vehicle. Please keep in mind that temperatures at Pinnacles National Park can vary widely. Temperatures upwards in the 90's are common in the summer months. Cool, cloudy mornings can turn into surprisingly warm days, even in winter. Please do not leave your chained pet unattended, even in the campground.

Dogs, and other pets are prohibited on Park trails. Domestic pets leave a scent that may disrupt, or alter the behavior of the native wild animals Pinnacles protects. Pets may also attract predators or transmit diseases to fragile habitat while in the park.
