Sorry, but this is not true. I, too, thought that dogs were not permitted
in backcountry areas of Shenandoah, but I asked the rangers at the check in
station about it, and sure enough, dogs are ok as long as they are leashed.
I think there are only a few trails that dogs are not permitted on (I don't
know them off the top of my head, but I bet they are horse trails).

Happy hiking!
