Silver City, NM, September 17, 2018—For Immediate Release.  The Gila National Forest receives dozens of phone calls every day, and one of the most commonly asked questions is: “Are dogs allowed in the forest and on forest trails.”

The short answer is “Yes”, but the long answer can be more complex. The employees of the Gila National Forest want you and your furry family member to have a safe and enjoyable experience on forest.  Some recommendations to help keep you and your pet safe:

Dogs must be on leash in developed recreation areas, trailheads, and parking lots (36 CFR 261.8d).  There are still times when it is best to keep your dog on a leash.

SUPPORT AMERICA’S HEROES: Wounded Warriors Cycle Across America to Raise Awareness for Veteran Issues Soldier Ride® is a nationally recognized veteran bike ride that inspires warriors to connect with each other and their communities, while providing the American public an opportunity to honor their service and sacrifices.

The adaptive cycling program began in 2004 when civilian Chris Carney cycled more than 5,000 miles coast-to-coast to support Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) and help raise awareness for injured veterans. The following year, several combat warriors who returned from Operation Enduring Freedom with visible and invisible injuries joined Chris for another cross-country ride.
