Nannie Ridge/Sheep Lake Professional Review and Guide

"The trail begins near the eastern end of the campground. The Nannie Ridge Trail (No. 98) climbs north through dense pine forests for more than a mile, crossing a couple shallow creeks (often dry late in the year) and gradually gaining elevation. As you hike, note that the soil here poses extra concerns for your dog.

The many volcanoes in the area have dumped a lot of light ash into the soil, making it gritty and powdery. In fact, by midsummer, the dirt trail is churned into several inches of billowy dust. Your dog, panting happily up the trail, needs plenty of water breaks to clear that dust from his throat."

Steep good day hike. Took about 4 hours. The views of the gorge are picture perfect and on a hot day its perfect as a good part of the hike is through the old growth.
