This is 3 stars because the description isn't accurate and the upper portion of the loop trail is inaccessible due to a rock slide. This trail is very busy, which means every 10 minutes you're stopping to let someone pass you on the narrow trail. You also won't see any wildlife with so many people wandering around. It's a really pretty area and nice hike if you like hanging out with a couple hundred strangers while you hike. I suggested changes to AllTrails for this hike description.
