5% Trails Access is Doggone Wrong

NOW is the time for dog owners to band together and speak up for dog walking in San Mateo County Parks. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Sign and share the petition for fair dog walking access in San Mateo County Parks. Write a comment for ultimate impact. http://www.tinyurl.com/SMCDogWalkingPetition

  2. Attend a County Parks dog plan meeting to speak up for fair trails access and dog walking recreation in county parks. See below for upcoming meeting dates and locations.

  3. Send a comment to County Parks’ Dog Work Group (ParksandRecreation@smcgov.org) about where you’d like more dog walking access.

  4. Join the Tails on Trails movement by putting a "Tails Belong on Trails in San Mateo County" and/or an "I have a dog. And I vote." car magnet on your car.  Click here to get your campaign car magnet(s).

  5. Continue to practice good trails etiquette on our 5% of dog-friendly trails. Click here for more information.
