We frequent Puzzle Mtn because of our close proximity to it. It is news to me that dogs must be on leash. I have seen hundreds of dogs on this trail and never on a leash. My own dog knows the trail by heart. In fact you might strangle your dog on some of the ledger sections if it was on leash. Just be sure your dog is well socialized, and is not threatening. A nice trail and great views from the ledges at 2/3rds way up and many great views from the ledges above that. Also Woodsum Loop is well worth it to extend your hike. For backpackers the Grafton Loop is tough but a gem.
