Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Grublet loved this hike. It's pretty steep and there are a few spots with large boulders to navigate so dogs should be pretty trail savvy. I had to lift her up and down one spot where the metal steps made it tough for her to scale the large rock face. Other than that, she did it all alone. Also there is no water on this trail. People need to be sure to pack plenty of extra water for their dogs and to take frequent water breaks.

Comments
Comments: What a great hike! The trail is in excellent shape. It would be very tough to get lost on the Brownsville Trail because there are plenty of blaze marks to be seen :) Really great trail maintenance from the looks of it. We explored the Weathersfield Trail to the West Peak vista (hang glider launch site) and that trail was great too.
