Sheila Jarrett BealWe've hiked here...with two dachshunds. They loved the trail but it was about a quarter mile too long for those short legs. One of them had to be carried. The other was too proud to be carried. :-)

Phillip BakerI took a picture from this same spot as well. Crabtree falls is an awesome hike, if close by be sure to stop and spend a couple hours to enjoy all it has to offer. It's about a 30 minute hike to the falls but will worth the time.
