Seasonal Leash Restrictions Aug. 15 - Nov. 1
These areas are frequent foraging locations for bears. Leash restrictions protect dogs and their guardians when there is a high probability of encountering bears, and help avoid disturbing bears while they feed during the critical pre-hibernation period.
Seasonal Leash Restrictions are in place Aug. 15 to Nov. 1.
Due to bear activity dogs must be leashed from 8-15 to 11-1 on the following trails:
- Portions of Gregory Canyon, Saddle Rock and Amphitheater Trails
- Skunk Canyon up to the Mesa Trail
- Upper part of Doudy Draw Trail
Grassland Ground Nesting Bird restriction in place May 1 to July 31
The Greenbelt Plateau area is also affected by a seasonal leash restriction for grassland ground nesting birds from May 1 to July 31 every year: Both sides of the Greenbelt Plateau trail from the Community Ditch trail to the Greenbelt Plateau trailhead on Highway 128. Dogs must be on-leash on the Greenbelt Plateau trail, view map.
