We did the entire loop, 3.9 miles. The first mile (steps) is straight up the mountain, a really steep incline, it doesn't level off any until the top. It's a long hard mile, but the views at the top are beautiful. When you get up there follow the trail to the left and it is a fairly level hike with views along the way. The best view is where Pennsylvania Furnace meets the Pump House Road! It's not an easy hike and I'd definitely recommend proper footwear.
