Dog Canyon to Joplin Point and back.

Hikes the Dog Canyon trail, to it's end, takes a left and proceeds up to a small hill over looking the basin. 12 miles and 3650' round trip. Easier and a little warmer than the full trip to Sunspot, and far shorter. Forecast reads for near 80 in the canyon on Monday, mid 60s likely on top. Maybe low 60s. Should be sunny. Still, not really a beginner hike. 7 hours of "hiking" is a wide window for a very relaxed pace!

    Great fun! The hike was a moderate one, but still tired me out; I think I quit about 3/4 of the way. Jim was a great hike leader, great company, and was very gracious about keeping down to my pace. Perfect weather!

    I won't be hiking till the bitter end, since I have to get back to Roswell, but I'd like to join you all for at least part of the way. Would that be okay? And can I bring my hiking dog with me (German Shepherd)?

      You can come for the start, and the dog is fine.

    Not up for this just yet. I've been wanting to, though. I've only been to the cabin and really want to go up "eyebrow".

      The cabin's as far as I've been, too. I know I can go further Dunno where Joplin Point is--I'll have to look it up on a map.
