East Dog Teeth - Nov 2020
As its name suggests, the Dog Teeth Range looks like dog teeth in term of shape and sharpness. One should take great care in attempting the trail.
Compared to Middle and West Dog Teeth, East Dog Teeth lures fewer visitors and this is the easiest among those three ridges. One of the reason is the lower portion of the trail is very obscure and is covered in a forest. Finding the right way would be pretty challenging. However, the middle and upper portion of the trail is open.
