There is no formal trail to Dog Canyon; however, it is an easy route to follow. The walk to the canyon can be traversed via one of two routes—by line of sight along a fairly well-worn social path across the desert flats or by entering Bone Spring/Nine Point Draw and following the dry arroyo downstream. This description traces the line-of- sight route across the desert.

This is one of the best trails in the park! It is unlikely you will encounter other hikers (solitude) and, it seems, there is always a new adventure on this hike - lots of stuff to 'discover' in the immediate vicinity. Happy Hiking!

This was a pleasant hike. The trip to the canyon area is pretty much a flat hike with cactus creating the only obstacles. Once you reach the mouth of the canyon the scenery takes on a drastic change. The rock formations are fairly standard for the canyons in the region, but picturesque none-the-less. I hiked a good way into the canyon while my wife rested up front. The ground is clear and rocky making it a easy walk. If you haven't made this trip, I certainly recomend it for a short hike. Exploring the canyon is worth the efw hours it will take out of your day.
