Runner Notes

The bogs are nearly impossible to run through!

Description

The Dobbin Grade Trail connects Bear Rocks Trail with the Rocky Ridge Trail to the west. It's 4.3 miles of open meadows, muddy bogs, and speckled forests. The elevation changes are manageable... but navigating the bogs can be tricky. Be prepared to get muddy while working your way through the bogs. Don't be surprised if you find yourself ankle deep in some sections! There's also some creek crossings that may require you to remove your boots (and socks)!

At about mile 2 you pass this trail's intersection with the Raven Ridge Trail and at mile 3 you pass Beaver View Trail before reaching the terminus at Rocky Ridge Trail.

Muddy, Some Mud - Very difficult to potentially unpassable sections of trail after heavy rainfall. Hard to see areas of quick-sinking mud. Stretches of about 5-30 feet with mud reaching up to knees in some areas. Required careful off-trail maneuvering.
