Four Peaks Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Winter hiking here is spectacular because only parts of these trails keep snow on the ground for any length of time. Dogs love the slushy snow, but the slush can also turn to ice. You will want to bring crampons because this is a hike that touches the bottom of the snowfall range for Arizona, and the snow-melt-freeze cycle can produce icy patches on the trail. Check your dog’s pads occasionally to see that she is not collecting painful clumps of snow and grit between her toes. Watch her for signs of hypothermia and put on her vest to keep her warm along shadier stretches."
--Renee Guillory, Best Hikes with Dogs: Arizona (The Mountaineers Books).
