"The Sherburne Pass Trail (blue blazes) dates back to 1913,when it was built as the original Long Trail (LT) through this area. Several years ago, the LT was moved slightly west to accommodate a potential ski area expansion, which has not happened yet. Do not be alarmed if the trailhead parking lot seems full of cars, even midweek. Most hikers head to Deer Leap on the opposite side of Route 4. The hike up Pico can also be busy, particularly on weekends, but midweek is typically less populated and perfect for a dog-hike now that the LT has been relocated." Read more

Great moderate difficulty trail. Very pretty scenery, and nothing too difficult or easy. The 'reward' isn't as spectacular, since you're also seeing chairlifts, equipment, etc. but still a nice view. Small streams for the dog to romp in, but no large lake or pond. We didn't see anyone else on the climb (May 16th).
