    What route did you take up Mt. Mansfield? I don’t remember much scrambling, but I know there are harder routes that do have some scrambling. In any case, I think the scrambling at the top of Mt. Marcy, though not at all strenuous or technical, is at least as difficult as Mansfield. If your dog wouldn’t be able to do Mansfield, I wouldn’t take him/her on Marcy.

      That was exactly what I needed to hear, and it helps me make my decision.

      I wound up taking the Long Trail up Mansfield from the Route 153(?) trailhead. As I remember, it was 2800′ vertical over 2.6 miles. The very top required nothing technical, just pulling yourself up short ledges – the exact thing I couldn’t take my dog on.

      Anyone want o babysit a very personable (but hates dogs) Border Collie for a day in June?
