One cold November night in the Blood Mountain Wilderness in north Georgia, Steve Goodrich and his wife Ashley had to wrap themselves around their yellow lab, Rebel, under one sleeping bag. It was the last time they would fail to anticipate their dog's special needs on the trail. Since then, Rebel and the Goodriches have hiked thousands of miles together in Georgia and South Carolina to select the best hikes the states have to offer you and your pooch. Includes information on everything you need to know before you hit the trails with your pup - what to pack for your dog, advice on trail etiquette, and potential doggy dangers.
