This trail starts off easily enough as a wide track through the haunted ruins of the Cobb Estate. (Google John Fleming's writeup, or check out Atlas Obscura for the history.)

Past the reservoir, the trail totally changes character, to a narrow, cliff-hugging path that requires some scrambling and bush-whacking. More "dog accessible" than "dog friendly." Be prepared to help your dog over rocks, and to pick out a lot of burrs afterwards.
