The east loop is actually 22.4 miles long and the west loop is 33 miles. If you are going to do this trail I recommend a map and giving yourself plenty of time. Did the east loop in 2 days. Lots and lots of steep hills and hills that had a gradual incline that lasted for a while. The landscapes all along the trail were breathtaking. Plenty of water sources available and lots of campsites. All in all, a great, but difficult trail!
