Nice hike! Most elevation gain is at the beginning, then the rest is pretty flat or slightly downhill. Followed the AllTrails trail, and went to Pulpit Rock first, then the Pinnacle. This is a cool time to hike it because there are quite a few thru-hikers around! I saw several, and talked to a few of them about their experiences hiking the Appalachian. Pretty good views at Pulpit Rock. Definitely quite a bit of muddy spots on the north side of the loop; I was happy to have waterproof hiking boots for those.
