I really enjoyed this trail- might be one of my favorites in the area. I also went clockwise down Harkins Ridge and the up Whittmore Gulch for a nice 7 miler. Perfect amount of shade, sun, greenery and wildlife. Love it.

Great hike in a great area, but the data in distance and lis elevation gained is incorrect.

If you look at the elevation profile, you will see it is a mirror image, meaning that one would have to do the loop shown twice to cover the distance and elevation gain

So it's really a 7 mile hike with 1800 feet of elevation gained. I posted data from a few gps sources to illustrate

This is a decent trail but not spectacular. We did it clockwise and the elevation on the way up is pretty good. I will say, not sure how this is 12.8 miles. I logged in at 9.5 and we went out to North Ridge Trail which added an extra 2 miles at least. Not a bad hike but if you're looking for distance, this is not 12 miles long.
