Many people enjoy taking walks with their dogs, and Chino Hills State Park does make accommodations if you wish to have your dog accompany you. However, there are some restrictions that must be followed:
Leashed dogs are only allowed on Bane Canyon Road and the road leading to McLean Overlook. Bane Canyon is the road that begins at the entrance of the Park off of Sapphire Road, in Chino Hills and ends at the Rolling M Ranch in the heart of the Park. (The road to McLean Overlook begins near where the dirt road becomes a paved road).
Dogs are also allowed on the adjacent campgrounds, picnic areas, and parking lots. Dogs are not allowed on any of the trails that branch off from Bane Canyon Road. Please look for signs that remind you where dogs are prohibited.
Dogs must be leashed at all times.
Please be considerate of others and the wildlife and clean up after your dog. Dog waste is a nuisance to encounter and may contaminate water sources.
