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.
