Great hike! In the summertime, I'd recommend hiking this in the morning for obvious heat reasons. This loop is quite varied in its vegetation and granite boulders. You follow Mint Creek most of the way, and at times the creek is quite full, so water shoes would serve you here. It was not full when we went though, despite it being monsoon season. Lots of wildflowers, trees, boulders, slight ups and downs--an easy hike but it still makes you feel like you accomplished something. I think kids would love this trail too, since they can explore the creek and spot tadpoles :). Trails go in all sorts of directions here, so it's easy to find yourself on a different trail, but it all connects back to the same parking lot and it's all beautiful! Highly recommend!
