    a couple of questions about canyonlands

    So last week I recieved a letter confirming my permit to ride the white rim. Initially, I was going to do it unsupported but now my folks want to go. Will this permit allow them to go/camp/drive around while I ride? It's kind of vauge & the permit office is closed for the day.

    Also what is the status on bringing dogs into Canyonlands or even Arches/Zion?


    Thanks!

    I haven't looked at an actual permit in quite a while, but I was pretty sure it was good for 2 vehicles and up to something like 16 people. ( found it, its 3 cars 15 people ) see here: http://www.canyonlands.national-park...mping.htm#camp
    Note the white rim is under "Island" ( island in the sky )

    I assume you are talking about a multi-day permit with assigned camp spots ( white crack, airport, murphy's, potato bottom etc ). If its some other back-country permit, then disregard my comments.

    That same link says "no pets".

    you are spot on, island in the sky white rim, potato bottom & gooseberry.

    and yes i found that pets are generally not allowed anywhere in the parks. Makes sense i suppose

    You want to run your dogs 100 miles? I limit mine to 12 mile runs. I don't want old dogs with bad hips in a few years.
    The dogs love Gooseberry. Tech rides are slower so easier for the dogs.
