The Ranney Trail is definitely the "path less traveled" and it is shorter but lacks the waterfall option and the early views.

There is no longer a spur trail to Mossy Cascade because several floods in the 1990s pretty much wiped out most of the soil next to the brook. Once the approach became mostly a rock hop, it did not seem that it should be considered a marked trail.

Finally, while you know your dog, the leash law does not apply to the Giant Mountain Wilderness Area in which Hopkins is located.
Every time that wheel turns round, bound to measure just a little more ground.
