On Leash Only
Dogs are allowed on the trail with a leash. However, we strongly recommend leaving your pup at home if you intend to get near the falls or hike to the top. The climb is intense and dangerous for dogs. On one trip, we saw a dog lose their footing on the slippery rocks and fall into the falls. This is not something you forget easily, and as a result, we leave our trail dogs at home.
Parking is limited and requires a $5.00, self-registered parking permit. There are pit and flush toilets at the trailhead. Day hikes into Desolation Wilderness require a self-registered wilderness permit, available by the information sign at the trailhead.
