Earth rests atop a collapsed fence. Two dogs from the property can sometimes be seen sniffing about or resting alongside the trail. One is a black lab mix in his/her first year. A puppy. The second is a mature rottweiler (?) lab (?) mix. Both are calm and show no aggression even when approaching within five feet.
However, there is a very busy road close by, and there are many trail users with dogs who may or may not be so well mannered, introducing a potential for conflict.
The last two times I've seen these dogs they have not wandered far from their "yard". I don't know which home this property connects to. It looks a little cluttered with vehicles from what can be seen from the trail and Google Earth.
