Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: This was a 20 mile round trip. Make sure your dog can handle multi days, long distances, and carried terrain. We had town walks, open fields, woods, and boulders. Bring plenty of water and make sure your dog is comfortable drinking from streams. Isis drinks at every stream we stop at and this helps cut down on some water carrying. It's the humid season so plan accordingly. Treat for flea and ticks and obey shelter etiquette.  
Bugs
Bugs: Yes... It's a fact of the trail at this time of year.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: NA 
 
Comments
Comments: 4 day and 3 night trip to finish the state of Massachusetts for myself and Isis. Headed North through Dalton MA to Mt. Greylock and enjoyed both he towns and the terrain very much. It was a to and steamy walk so I took plenty of water breaks and rest stops for Isis. Had a great time on my vacation completing this goal... What's next? Haven't thought of it yet.

If I can recommend anything it would be to get out and explore this area. The MA AT was some of the most enjoyable miles I have hiked. Feel free to check out my blog as well as any other of my blogs at the link below.
