Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: This is an easy trail for fido, a good beginning trail as there are no ledges and it is not steep. Note, however, that today we saw a bear cup scampering off from the trail. If Lauky had been running free as 9 out of 10 dogs do he would have chased the cub and might have been killed by the mother. Just some food for thought. 
Bugs
Bugs: A few mosquitoes at the trailhead, but nothing requiring bug spray. Also a few flies and gnats on the summit of Star King.

Comments
Comments: There is a fair bit of mud between the summits but it can be fairly easily bypassed. This trail is never steep and is a good beginner trail.
