There are 3 different trails to Dog Lake and Reynolds Peak:
- The Big Water Trail in Milcreek,
- Butler Fork in Big Cottonwood,
- Mill D North Fork in Big Cottonwood.
Big water is the easiest taking only 2 hours (one way)
Finding Dog Lake presents no problem,
but getting to Reynolds Peak is a bit trickier.
Just south of Dog Lake is a 4 way trail junction,
Go west, about 200 feet later, there is a side trail
that leads south, up a forested hill, off of the main trail.
Follow it south through the trees and brush.
The trail might grow faint, but keep going up the ridge (south)
the trail will become clear again, all the way to the top.
