February 2018. The loop itself is spectacular with many phenomenal vistas . The total mileage measured by my GPS was well over the 13.2 miles listed in the guide. We finished with approximately 17.5 miles. A bit more than we had bargained for and the other issue is that the people who maintain the trail had not been out and many portions were overgrown with vegetation and more problem-some, sticker bushes. This is especially a problem on the Rogers Canyon Trail. There is a huge field at Angel basin for camping. Only a few sporadic campsites on the Reavis ranch trail and none on the Rogers Canyon trail. We did this during dry conditions with no available stream water. We carried 1.5 gallons each.
