A Dog Friendly Hiking Guide to Perth

Some of the best hikes in the Perth area are unfortunately located within national parks so bringing your dog along isn't an option but that doesn't mean your four legged friend should miss out on the opportunity to run amok in nature.

 

Below is a guide to the hiking trails in Perth that you can take your furry children to for a fun day out. As I visit more trails I will be adding to this list so there are a few more to come. 

 

Click on the trail name or photos to find out more information on each trail including where to find them, maps and hiking grade.

 

As always please make sure you are a responsible dog owner and adhere to the Leave No Trace principles when out on the trails.
