A leash is not required as long as your dog responds to voice commands, but keep it handy in case you encounter other trail users or wildlife such as javelina or deer, which range here. Be aware that rattlesnakes and venomous lizards live nearby; be sure of your dog’s ability to respond to voice command and keep her close to you, especially among the bouldery riverbanks that make up much of your trail beyond Badger Springs Wash.

We did this hike in November and there was no water to be found along the wash or the river bed. The hike is reccommended as a dog hike, which was ok for our lab, however there were small needle burrs he kept getting them stuck in his paws and many boulders in the river bed he had to stumble over. This would be a tough task for anything less than a large dog. This was somewhat tough for a lab. The canyons are really cool and the scenery is awesome.
