Most people connect with Flying Dog via the Glenwild loop or a combo of 24/7 and either Stealth, from Kimball Jct, or Fink Again, from Jeremy Ranch.
Flying Dog adds a longer run to the many options in the Glenwild trail network. The author's preferred route is to pick up Flying Dog from Glenwild Loop
, climbing the 16 exposed switchbacks, then descending down the other side through Aspens and Pines.
There is a bench at the top, around mile 2.4.
Moose and other wildlife have been 'encountered' near the pond at mile 4.1 of this route.
