Good uphill with great views.

Definitely a challenge if you do the whole loop & the peak trail. Beautiful views, one of my favorite hikes so far this summer. Took 4 hours roundtrip.

Enjoyed the hike!! Going back to get to Bergen Trail tomorrow! Be prepaid for an all day hike, ours was cut short!

Nice hike, moderate incline and nice views for the effort. Definitely worth taking the slight detour to the summit as you get great views of some high peaks to the west!

Great hike. Went counterclockwise and took the inside loop back. Good decisions. Summit view is worth it. Steady incline up, then a long gentle decline. Moderate-to-hard

Did the loop hike. This was my friends first ever hike. He did really well on it. The summit hike was very good. Well worth the hike. Great photos from the top but also along the way.

A pretty relaxed loop, with an optional peak hike that you should definitely take the extra effort to summit. It has very nice views. The traffic gets on the heavy side around noon, so be prepared to meet lots of bikers, hikers and runners on the trail. It is also a little close to the road in the meadow section of the loop, but it wasn't a big drawback.

Great mountain views. Especially at the peak.

DEFINITELY GET HERE EARLY! We arrived around 6:30 with about 5 cars in the lot. When we left, it was full. Beware of rude mountain bikers who whiz past without announcing themselves. Beyond that, however, this was a very pleasant and long hike.

With a number of great views, if you make it all the way to the uppermost point of the loop, you might as well hike on up the Bergen Peak trail itself. It's not that much further! At this point, there wasn't much snow (just some patches here and there), and not much mud.

A lot of dog owners with off leash dogs, and even more little plastic baggies of dog poop around the lower trails as well.
