9/17. Hiked this in reverse order. Started out by hiking to lost pond. Our lab,Stella wanted a bath, but it was muddy and the water was low. She enjoyed it, and shook mud on us both. Continued on to the summit of Weston mountain. Easy hike until the last 3/10 or so mile. This section of the trail was very eroded and steep. Had lunch on top. Lovely views and quite windy. Continued on over the nun da ga o ridge. Nice hike with great views along the rim of the ledge. A bit tricky finding the trail after hiking on the rock ledges. Had to look for scrapes in the rocks from crampons of winter hikers. Really a nice walk thru the forest and at times out on the ledges. However, there was a few scrambles down some rocky cliffs. Had to go ahead to find the trail; than backtrack and in a few places lift the dog off a steep ledge. Slow and steady...
Finished off the hike with a climb up big crow mountain. Well worth the half mile or so hike up! Really great views!!
All in all, a great hike, it is dog friendly; but your best friend will need a helping hand at times!
