For hikers with dogs there is even more to love about this threeseason hike: frequent stream crossings, two large pools, lots of shady cover, and a fairly soft trail over most of the route. After watering and leashing your dog, you take a steep but very short descent into the canyon. You will soon hear the rush of water—your dog will hear it first— and then see the trail fork left for Packard Trail 66 and right for Parsons Trail 144. Stay on the Parsons Trail, where the rocky, exposed canyon route ducks under the shade.
