Glad Katie done good! 🐕
That's a bit odd direction; I'd usually do it as clockwise loop (Parking - Dog - Suicide - Seymour trail - Parking). Did you do it this way to get bit more hiking? You could have extended then to Pencier bluffs. (Parking - Dog - Suicide - Brockton - Pencier - Mystery - Parking)
Ya, loops are always nice, but I don't like the Dog Mtn. trail. We've done it once and that was enough. Both Katie and I enjoy the SB trail, and in both directions. I don't have air conditioning in my truck, so we were looking for a short day too.
