Dogs on Kit Carson

Postby kalaires » Thu Jul 22, 2010 8:28 pm

I am planning to climb Challenger Point and Kit Carson this weekend and would like to take the dogs. They have done plenty of class one and two but we haven't taken them on any class three mtns yet. Does anyone know how dog friendly the trail is?

Do a forum search on "Kit Carson Dogs" and you'll find a multitude of information on past posts on this topic.

The standard route up Challenger contains a lot of loose rock. I, for one, would not want to have dogs above me as they tend not to be conscientious about rockfall.
