Hiking trails around Big Meadows?

We got a small group camping out this weekend at Big Meadows, we are looking for one or two nice hiking trail around the area that can accommodate dogs. Wondering if you can recommend some trails with good scenery close to the area?

Here is the map of trails around Big Meadows:


At Big Meadows there is a very nice section of the AT; one of my favorites, Rose River (just be sure to stay off Dark Hollow Falls if you have the dogs with you as DHF and RR intersect) and Lewis Falls which allows you to loop back to BM using the AT.

If you want to venture farther away from BG, consider Jones Run Trail (waterfall) and Blackrock Summit (great views and cool rocks) in the southern section of SNP.

Here is information from the SNP site regarding hiking with dogs and a list of trails where dogs are not allowed:


Happy trails
