Steep Rock can be walked as a loop or as two separate down-and-back walks. The stretch on the right side of the river does have some very rocky, steep parts - but the left side of the river is beautifully flat and easy for folks like me, who are at best strollers and amblers rather than hikers. Poop bags and disposal can are available at the trail head, but you’re going to have to keep your mess with you as there are no trash cans along the trail. That’s the worst thing I can say - the trail is wide and follows the lovely river, with a few places to pull off and let your dogs into the shallow water. On nice days there are lots of other users - be aware of bikers and horses- so flexi leads may not be the best idea.
