It’s still a long hike to the summit of Hall via this trail, and 4000 feet of elevation is no small task. However, the climb isn’t too demanding. There are only a few short, steep sections, and there’s plenty of shade. You’ll likely have the summit to yourselves. The Forest Service keeps the short trail option closed for most of the year to assure that few people (and few dogs) congregate on this mountain. Why? Hall is the home to a large population of bighorn sheep, and its sprawling alpine meadows have also played host to wayward grizzlies. No need to worry too much about the grizzlies—they are extremely rare in northeastern Washington. You are, however, almost guaranteed to see other wild critters here. Your dog should not hassle the sheep—but you already know that.
