Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extreme exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
This hike to Dog Lake is a short and wooded trail of mostly easy angle except for one steep final climb to the lake.
It climbs a little over 1000 feet in the 2 1/2 miles it takes to gain the lake.
