While many national parks have a lot of catching up to do to become more pet friendly, you should be able to find a few places that will welcome your furry friend while staying in Cedar City, Utah. After all, you will want to make sure your pet enjoys the vacation as much as you.
For a truly pet-friendly experience, check out the lesser known Dixie National Forest. All the trails in Dixie are open to pets and offer their own stunning views of the deserts and canyons. With Cedar City so close to both Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park, two of the most scenic places to visit, you will want to rent a car and see the views for yourself.
If you want to visit Bryce Canyon National Park, there are a few places you can walk with your pet. Leashed, they are permitted on all paved surfaces, including a trail between Sunset Point and Sunrise Point as well as a path near Inspiration Point. If there happens to be a tour you would like to join, you are able to leave your pet in good hands at any nearby daycare. A notable daycare is PAWZ in Panguitch, which is good for both dogs and cats.
Zion National Park has a specific trail open to pets called the Pa’rus Trail. It is nearly two miles long along the Virgin River. Also, Zion has a few daycares for your pets so you can tour without worrying about their wellbeing. Doggy Dude Ranch takes particular care in making sure your pet enjoys their time away from you.
