Description is misleading as there is no loop unless you return by the road the trail intersects with. Strictly forest trail, I spotted only one vista. There is a web of trails weaving across the ridges and slopes with names related to Alice in Wonderland, which added whimsy for an otherwise dull hike. Toothpick trail is short and you can connect to any of the other trails to extend your hike. Just keep track of where you are because it’s a maze up there! Most fascinating to me were the dozens of mountain bike trails criss-crossing everywhere. Sadly, the plastic tape strung between trees and many signs advertising bike routes and warnings for bikes took away from my enjoyment of the hike. The mountain bikers that passed us were very polite and conscientious.
