There’s nothing more fun than going on a hike with your furry friend. Whether you have two legs or four, we have unleashed our favorite trails in California’s North Bay that are both doggy-tested and doggy-approved.
1: Spring Lake Park (Santa Rosa, CA). Stephanie A. writes, “I absolutely love to walk my three dogs around Spring Lake. And that is because I get to check out all of the other awesome dogs walking the lake, too. Yes, I totally love checking out dogs. I’m a dog nerd like that.”
2: Westwood Hills Park (Napa, CA). According to Julie Z., “You can bring dogs if they are on leash… Both mountains have beautiful views of the Napa valley and surrounding areas. You can spot lots of wildlife like turkey vultures, lizards, etc. This is a great place to come for a short 30 minute hike or half day hike if you want to explore the whole place.”
3: Baltimore Canyon (Larkspur, CA). This is Sadie M.’s favorite spot in Marin to go for a hike. “Beautiful scenery, fresh air and lots of cute dogs! I try to get up there at least once a week, and my favorite time of year is winter because it smells so fresh and clean… and if it’s been raining, there are plenty of mini-falls to check out.”

And if relaxing and sipping vino is more your speed, we put together this Yelp Collection of North Bay wineries and tasting rooms that get two paws up from Yelpers and their canine companions. Let the Yappy Hour begin!
Here are a few of our Fido-approved favorites.
1: Larson Family Winery (Sonoma, CA). Maggie L. enjoyed a leisurely dog day afternoon at this winery. “Traveling through Sonoma with our dog and two teens, and needed to find a great wine tasting location that was both kid and dog friendly. Bingo with Larson! We loved it. Great outdoor seating with corn hole and open spaces for kids and dogs to roam.”
2: St. Supery Estate Vineyards & Winery (Rutherford, CA). According to Brighton E., “A lot of wineries describe themselves as dog friendly but actually loathe people and their dogs. St. Supery is different! Our dog was as welcome as us humans and treated so respectfully by our server, who was incredibly knowledgeable and professional but also warm and friendly.”
3: Mutt Lynch Winery (Kenwood, CA). Dawn R. raves, “Truly the dog friendliest tasting room ever! Wine Club even includes a dog treat/toy! This is a must for anyone with a mutt. Tons of dog themed merchandise for sale as well and every wine label has a dog on it.”
Cheers to all our featured parks and businesses!
