Santa Cruz Trail: One of the most popular trails. It goes 1.5 miles to Nineteen Oaks Camp, then 4 more to the top of Little Pine Mountain. If you continue on this trail, you can enter the San Rafael Wilderness. The trailhead is at Upper Oso Campground.
Canyon RegulationsAccess to the Canyon, as well as general access to the river, and most picnic areas are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.Pets are welcome as long as you keep them under control. Generally this means keeping them on a leash.
So here are the facts ! Yes your dog is to be leashed & the owner does need to take responsibility for allowing his dogs to run off leash ahead of him & out of sight that is not a responsible pet owner ! It is a tragic sham of what happened to the dog but initially it is the DOG OWNERS RESPONSIBILITY TO BE IN CONTROL OF THIER PETS @ ALL TIMES

It shall likewise be unlawful for any person owning or having possession, charge, custody or control of any animal to cause or permit or allow the same to be staked out, or to herd or graze any animal upon any unenclosed private lot or land in such a manner that the rope or other attachment by which such animal is tethered may permit such animal to be or to go beyond the boundaries of the unenclosed private lot or land. Any animal, suffered or permitted to be at large, or otherwise to be within the City in violation of the provisions of this Title, is declared to be a public nuisance.

It is a terrible what happened to the dog - but also the owner is to blame there is a leash law in the state of California - no matter how sweet the dogs are you must obey the law & have your dogs leashed to many people having their dogs off leash @ beaches - trails - parks etc.. Are ruining it for responsible pet owners , you can exercise your dog on leash I do it every day & have a very happy fit dog , I could let my dog off leash he actually is professionally trained & obedient , but I don't because it is breaking the law even the owner said he herd his dog barking , the hunters may have been a bit over doing it but also the owner of Billy is more to blame he put Billy in harms way & like I said I'm sorry for his loss but he needs to face the fact that he put Billy in harms way !
