Love this hike! Went yesterday with my 4 big dogs and had a blast. Very dog friendly off leash trail as long as your pup is well socialized and under your control/has good recall. It rained the first 2.2mi up Jerusalem trail til we hit the LT. We went north briefly to hit up the Glen Ellen shelter so I could change, then back on to the LT and went south to the Mt. Ellen summit. The sun had emerged and the views were beautiful but do know it’s not quite a 360. Sugarbush resort’s summit chair lift tops the 4,082ft. With the detour, we ended up going 9mis. Definitely recommend; usually not a heavily trafficked trail. Parts are challenging/steep but there are plenty of flats to help break up the incline. Go enjoy!
