For years I've been using Lynn Peak as my Grouse Grind but I think that is coming to an end. I find it terribly boring these days and despite being a great condensed cardio workout, I'm finding that fact that 0% of the many dog owners that hike this trail ever have them on leash as the park signage asks. More importantly they let them shit freely everywhere.
I know nothing will convince these people of the risks to hikers their animal presents, nor the the damage to the ecosystem - I just don't want to have to see it anymore when I'm trying to relax and absorb the restorative aspects of nature. I'll go somewhere with less people and dogs.
