devils bathtub is a beautiful lake surrounded by some amazing peaks the 44 mike hike up is mostly easy thought there is over a 1000 feet elevation gain and its lost difficult at the end the trails are well marked and the hike is beautiful, the swimming hole and the bathtub at the end are the cherry on top beware the water is freezing even if its mid july it does feel good imo to jump in and take a dip after the 2 mile hike up the mountain, if you have a bigger dog that doesnt mind getting wet it should be fine for most of the trail we had to cross the creek multiple times by steping on rocks but the water was less than ankle deep
