Did this with my spouse and two dogs. Great way to spend an afternoon out in the woods. This particular loop is mostly forested and a good mix of sun/shade. Expect a fair bit of up and downs but no really heavy climbs or descents. We did it towards the end of July and the mosquitoes were bad. Didn’t see anyone out hiking, did run into several people out mountain biking (which these trails are also used for). Best to try to listen for them coming and move aside. Made a bit of a detour from the route and stopped down at Cedar Lake #2 to have a rest and let the dogs swim (no dogs allowed at Cedar Lake #1, no problem, I’ll hike to the quieter more private one). I would highly recommend as it’s not far off the intended route and it’s gorgeous. Pictures provided. Great loop and would do it again, however, Moonraker in general is tremendous and has so much to offer that when I do return I’ll most likely try something completely new.
