Can easily be paired with the dark hollow falls trail to make for a 7 mile loop back to the Big Meadows Campground.

Recommend starting loop downhill (left after gate), and ending coming uphill on the Rose River Horse Trail. There are some easy paths but many rocky climbs...definitely helpful to have at least one hiking pole or walking stick and trail shoes, not just sneaks. Plenty of water holes for water happy dogs but they have to be able to scramble, and be sure-footed. An easy version is to just walk the horse trail down to Dark Hollow Falls and back.
