Parked at 475 where you would start Pilot Road or Farlow Gap. Took the Art Loeb in the other direction until it joined with Butter Gap. Took that until Long Branch and took that back to 475 and car. GPS was acting up but seemed like about 10 miles. Art Loeb portion can be steep but the rest is pretty low key. All is beautiful, however, and the Butter Gap portion has a number of nice creek crossings and a beautiful waterfall.
