It's ok. Good hike no reason bring your dog they can't swim.
I think this is more on the easy side, I like to start on route 3 by Upper Hadlock and walk the (very rocky and root bound) trail beside the brook to Lower Hadlock. From the waterfall the trail to the right has again, many roots and rocks until you get to the dam on the other side, then the path is more smooth to walk on. Take the time to stop at the two big rocks by the road and see how many bullfrog tadpoles you can spot!
Great trail to get to Sargent. Beautiful tall waterfall along the way.
Very scenic and it brings you to a beautiful waterfall, the waterfall is best after a lot of rainfall though. The trail is beautiful and if you like nature you won't mind it at all ! Highly recommend it and you can take it and end up on top of Sargent !
Rocky, muddy and rooty.. Just about describes most trails in the area. Better trails to be found and if not for ending on Sargent would not be worth it.
