Cococino National Forest is certainly one of the most diverse national forests. It ranges from desert, to the red rocks of Sedona, to pine forests, to alpine tundra in the mountains. Cococino offers many exploration options such as hiking, fishing, water sports, and winter sports.

Coconino National Forest is dog friendly, and it's a great place to bring a dog. Dogs are allowed throughout the forest while on a leash, and they are allowed in campgrounds.

It can get very hot in some sections of the Forest, depending on the time of year -- please make sure you bring enough water for your dog, and don't leave your dog unattended in a vehicle when it's not safe.


Trail Policy

Dogs are allowed on trails, but must wear a leash.

Campground Policy

Dogs are allowed in the many campgrounds at the Forest. Dogs must be restrained or on a leash at most campgrounds.
