The chapel was very beautiful for dog lovers. Next door was a gift shop with a lot of pretty high-priced artwork. We couldn't hike the trails as it was pouring rain. And be forewarned, it is on a dirt road (GPS doesn't mention that).

For anyone who has lost a pet you will understand when you enter the chapel. The walls are covered with tributes to pets who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
