Hike the Spanish loop in a counter clockwise direction. You will be glad towards the end, the last 3/4 mile is downhill.

Today's weather was 90 plus degrees with high humidity. Very taxing but loved the hike.

Parking is well marked at the trailhead - roadside. You can also make this a very long end to end by using the FLT/NCT trail to Virgil Mtn. with the Foxfire lean to use for camping.
