Beautiful trail. Fun for me to figure out where John's Rock was. I left from the building, so it was at least 4.2 to there. I expected it to be at the top after the nearly vertical section, but it was much farther down the trail. Good news is that it's shorter and easier back to the parking lot if you go in that direction! Can't wait to do it again in the spring,

Very good hike. I went there ti see the view from John Rock, therefore I climbed up to the top on John Rock 365. Excellent view, but also the other part of the forest in this loop are very nice.

Great moderate hike. We did not do the Johns Rock loop and it took about 2 hours. Easy to find trail head, well blazed and pretty well groomed overall

This is a fantastic loop. The hike was more difficult than I anticipated but doable. Drink water and take breaks when needed. I took the loop to john rock then did the rest of the loop. The weather was perfect and I loved seeing all the fall foliage. An absolutely gorgeous hike
