There's Some Bite in this Bulldog

Overview
This trail goes north from the Meridian Trailhead to Bulldog Saddle.


Hike
This unmarked but easy-to-follow trail is the first segment of the Peak 3004 Loop Hike. This portion of the hike is not the hardest hike in the world, but it is not an easy hike either.

Instead of doing the Peak 3004 Loop, novice hikers may wish to turn around and go back to the trailhead once reaching Bulldog Saddle. Once reaching Bulldog Saddle, more adventurous hikers might choose to go east up to Peak 3125. From there one could go back down to Bulldog Saddle; head south on the Ironwood Ridgeline 3108 Loop; or head north to Peak 3163, aka Hippy Hill and Bulldog Ridge.
