Great place to take your dog (although technically dogs are supposed to be leashed at all times, I've never had a problem with my dog off-leash, and see most folks have their pups off-leash, too-just make sure your dog is dog/people friendly). If you're in really good physical shape, then the route will probably be easy-moderate. I am packing some extra 'luggage', AND I have severe Asthma, so for ME, parts of the route are a little more difficult. Still, I take little 'breaks', and enjoy the scenery (which overlooks the pond). One half of the route is up-hill (that's the more strenuous half).

It should be noted that the whole trail is heavily occluded w/ stumps, woody vines, rocks, and many obstacles. Attention must be paid so that one does not trip over this stuff; that's another reason that makes this trail a little more difficult. For someone really light on their feet, they can easily avoid said obstacles, and 'hop' over a lot of the stuff. For me....a LITTLE bit harder.

A great work-out; especially for someone just starting out exercising and/or hiking. I love this hike, and so does my dog! Highly recommended!

Burr Pond is a great place to go for a quick brisk hike before or after work. It's great place to bring your doggie friends.
If you're more adventurous, you can locate the John Muir trail up on the western side and hike over to Hall Meadow and Sunnybrook in Torrington.
