Both terrible and beautiful, Dark Canyon is an excellent choice for very strong dogs in search of solitude and desert wilderness. You and your dog will be panting on the way in and out of the canyon, but tails will wag once you’re on the canyon floor where opportunities to swim and roll in the sand abound. Bring plenty of water for your pup and be sure to have a cooler of water waiting for you on your return.
