Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Oh yeah. I have a 40 lb dog who has been hiking for 10 years and this is the first time we changed our route because i thought the trail was too difficult for her. The boulders on the king ravine trail going right before you come into the open ravine required a few boosts and wracked a few nerves. As we started ascending the headwall of king ravine there were more and more difficult spots. I showed her the routes and gave her boosts but after thinking about how if she slipped and fell i would have a heck of a time getting her out of a boder trap i decided to turn around. A minor panic attack later and we were safely back on the floor of the ravine. Not wanting to climb down more boulders on the king ravine trail i opted for the chemin des dames to get out of the ravine. Much smaller, more manageable boulders. Thanks to the nice boy who gave us a ride back to lowes store.

Comments
Comments: Would not recommend ascending king ravine unless you and your dog are experienced and confident scaling car sized boulders.
