Once you find the trailhead sign, it’s very easy to stay on the trail. We only hiked up to the vista point (another wood sign about 500-600 feet vertically from base). Almost all switchbacks to get there and very high gradient hiking. It was wet from rain earlier in the day and we were able to make it up with our slipping. You can see the whole valley at the vista, very cool view. It rained on our way down, so we took our time as slipping on the way down was a concern. Very accessible and easy hike if you only go up to the vista, the whole loop looks much more difficult. Took about 25 minutes to get to vista from base. Not recommended for children or people not fit for very steep climb.

Awesome trail up. Not enough time to finish the loop. Will do it again leaving earlier.
