Finding Trail Descriptions

So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

8/29/12 Ragged Mountain

A really nice day- temps in the 70's, sunny, no bugs. We hadn't done Ragged from Rte. 17 in awhile so that was our choice. At the parking lot we met two men with dogs and ended up hiking up with them ( we offered to let them get ahead of us but they declined as the dogs were enjoying each others company) . 

 Sherman tended to lead our group up the trail

 The three of them

 Kelley and Schooner did a lot more fooling around

We had our lunch at the summit and let the others have the hike down to themselves. As we started down we met another man with a dog and ended up doing the whole hike down with them

Mary Ann ( I may have the name wrong) was another nice dog and she and Kelley also got along well. Her owner was involve with the land trust so we talked trails and hiking with dogs.

A very pleasant hike with lots of play with other dogs for Kelley and conversation for me. 3  1/4 hours
