Hello! We are looking to hike this trail with our 3 year old lab. Do you think it is doable with a dog? Thanks.
We took our 3 year old dog on this hike. It was not strenuous for him, but, when we got to the second peak, I wish I had put him on a leash because there are large boulders and crevices off trail that he explored and we got very worried that he might fall between the rocks and we would have a hard time getting him out. This did not happen, however and we were all much relieved.
It would be a rough hike in some areas for your dog. There are parts where you climb through crevices and walk on ledges. It is doable, having had friends who have done it but just take your time.
