Hiker Pup

Today Ada and I hiked the Wolf Ridge Loop in the Marin Headlands. At 4.3 miles, it’s a pretty long hike for her, so I ended up carrying her about half the time and stopping often for water and treat breaks. I highly recommend it for a short dog-hike because:

  1. dogs can be off leash for the whole loop,
  2. the trails are wide and often paved (if your dog tends to get debris in her hair), and
  3. it’s sunny but not too hot because of the cool wind off the ocean.

As recommended in the Bay Area Hiker guide, we stopped for lunch at the high point where Wolf Ridge Trail meet the Costal Trail and I snapped this photo.

It took a lot of combing and a lot of soap to get all that dirt and debris out of her fur. And she still has brown feet.

  1. How adorable! Maybe she needs a lightweight jacket to keep her fur clean and free of burrs.
