Beutiful!! Took about 6 hours with Seven Hollows. I agree with the other comments counterclockwise is definitely the way to take the trail.

The waterfall and pool at the end are definitely worth the trip. It wasn't too hard of a trail there were kids and a few able-bodied older people. The dog managed it fine. Be sure and drive to the overlook as well to get a birds-eye view.

Great trail. Took about 4 hours, not including a short stop at Mather’s Lodge for a break. Take the trail counterclockwise for a less steep climb.
Will definitely hit this one again.
