Big Lick Trail Professional Review and Guide

"What hiking dog wouldn’t be interested in a trail called Big Lick? But before you get your best buddy all worked up, this trail isn’t lined with kibble or last night’s leftovers. Neither are there legions of sweaty hikers to greet. What’s to lick then? Just miles of Kettle Mountain wilderness morsels and your face, of course, upon completing a great day’s hike.

The Big Lick offers some of the best wildlife habitat in the Kettles. Your dog’s nose will be in high gear sniffing out all of the creatures that have scurried before him on this quiet trail. Bear, deer, moose, cougars, martens, grouse, and coyotes all have left behind plenty of tracks, scents, and scat. What’s missing are the two-legged creatures. The Big Lick sees very few hikers."
