Cute trail, the lake is beautiful, some snow patches still here and there. Quite muddy today, and swarms of mosquitoes and flies . Lots and lots and lots of flies...

Amazing trail for both snowshoeing & hiking! Great for solo hikers!

Quite a number of stairs (nothing like the Grind ofc), but a nice easy hike w/ a pretty view. Would recommend for beginners.
There’s also a flat wood railing near the top set of stairs where people can write their names!
Make sure to grab the staple donut at Honey Doughnuts & Goodies after your hike as a reward (:

Good hike. Pretty easy. We took a detour which made it longer and a tad harder. The view is good from the top.

loved the hike, not a fan of all the stairs lol

There is a high amount of foot traffic. Arrive early to find parking, and prepare yourself for lots of stairs. All culminates to a lovely view.

The town offers simple parks and gardens by the waterfront through which you can wander with ice cream, gelato, cinnamon buns, or doughnuts. Grab a seat after the hike and enjoy a beer and pizza, or rent a kayak for a few hours if you're up for more activities.

Worth a trip.

very touristy but a beautiful trail nonetheless :)

View is spectacular! The trail is not so clean with wet mud and big roots but with the challenge comes the reward. I

This is a no dog zone, because it’s part of the city water reservoir, therefore we couldn’t walk there.

Good first hike of the season, just enough incline to make it feel like a hike. Haven’t done this hike for a few years and was surprised by how busy it was in the middle of the week. Be ready for every other person hiking to be gripping their phones or texting as they are hiking. Also passed a few people with music blaring which just doesn’t seem to fit the surroundings.

Definitely get ready for an incredible hike. The mud made it so much fun. Watch the roots, but I would do this hike over and over. We took the dog and he loved it even on the leash. The shade, the views, the weather made this one of my favorite hikes. Not very busy on a Wednesday morning. Even the drive up was pretty.

Bring bug spray!!

amazing views

Will be great once the bridge is open again, but until then it’s not worth it - awkward, not well marked detour.

Nice easy walk through the woods; perfect for out of town guests who want a quick outdoor activity. Easy hike, great view. Can’t lose.

Took it with my kids and they all made it round trip!

A very rewarding hike. The trail is still very muddy, with snow still covering a decent sized section of the trail. Wear appropriate footwear! The trail is quite rocky, and covered in roots, so watch your step! The view at the top is stunning, and defiantly worth the hike!

Great hike. Did it today. Not much to add only that when we got out of car at the parking lot, we were attacked by a tons of tiny flies. Thought they might be mosquitoes at first but fortunately not. Don’t let it deter you as once we passed the info shed to start the hike, they all dissipated..

Good little jaunt with a great view at the end, bring a small snack/lunch and enjoy on the rock before heading back down again.

We walked Dog Mountain today. There was a bit of snow at some places and a bit cloudy. When we got to the top we had a view. It was a nice day.

I did the trail today with my friend, we did three round of the trail, we ran totally 8.4km. Very easy trail and it took us 15-18 minutes for one loop about 2.7km.

Great view at the top but loads of people around on a sunny day. Do recommend going early morning to avoid rush hour and enjoy a beautiful sunrise. Lots of stairs!

We went this morning. I recommend grippy shoes that you’re not afraid to get dirty, nice and muddy!

Nice, easy hike, but 75% still covered in snow which makes it a bit tricky at the moment. Overall beautiful scenery and two cute little lakes, but mosquitos...and LOTS of them. Not much elevation gain, so should be great to go shoe-shoeing in the winter.

An intro hike with great view. Deep cove is also great for standup paddle boarding and picnics.

Hot and sunny up in the mountains! Still lots of snow and debris so the trail is a bit more difficult to navigate through. Watch your footing and be careful on the rocks.

Thought this hike was going to be really easy but was surprised by how challenging it was due to snow still being on the trail in mid June. Good hiking boots are required. It has a. Ice mix of ups and downs with no real tough sections. One of the area’s best “Bang for your buck” hikes when you consider the reward.
