We did this one clockwise as a trail run last week. There is a greater than 1 mile stretch where it is very steep and we had to walk at least 1/2. It was a challenge to find the trail from the Overlook initially and then lots of washed out trail with tree debris from all of the flooding on the back half. It was much harder to navigate than a month ago (understandably, given the weather!). Great if you are training for hills!
