Is this trail dog friendly? I have never hiked it and I am aware that there is a section of ladders. Are they negotiable by a (big and lumbering) dog?
Thanks

Absolutely, it's a great trail. Have fun.

They're not ladders, they are stairs, though with narrow treads. Your pup would have to be pretty clumsy (or very timid) to have problems up or down.

If your dog has done stairs before, then it shouldn't have any problems. The fellow in my avatar has done them multiple times in both directions (and me too ...)

Wait, what stairs? All I remember from this past winter was this nasty white chute of snow that took 10 minutes to flounder up in waist deep snow!!!! :D;)

I may have miss counted , but according to my notes there's 18 sections of stairs . They just seem to go on and on ! Yeah , when I was first up there in the winter I never saw any stairs either !
All in all , it's a very mellow trail ...

One of the most user friendly trails in the whites and great for running descents.

Where are the stairs in relation to the Flume summit? I'm thinking of bushwhacking off Osseo at about two miles from Flume, where it looks like it starts switchbacking and takes a major turn before heading more due south to Lincoln Woods. Would I miss most of the stairs that way?

Gwynna, are you planning on using the old Osseo Trail?

The stairs start 3.2 miles from the wilderness trail and aprox.1 mile from the summit of Flume.

Yeah, some stairs would have been very convenient! ;)
