Hiked on 12/31. Agree with the below poster. Due to lack of government funding, there were a lot of blow downs. It took significant time and patience (barely had any left after this loop) to get through the trail. I had bloody legs after from all the scrambling through blow downs. It was worth it and is definitely a great loop, but the blow downs weren’t fun. I did see about twenty elk while hiking in the woods though. They’ve retreated from the fields and into the backcountry this time of year.
