Great spot to go enjoy the river in the summer. The water can get deep enough to jump off the rocks after a good rainy season. I’ve never done the whole loop, but based on the difficulty of the trek to the spur down to the river we like to take, about 2 miles from the day use parking, I’m sure it’s hot and miserable. It is also a fire road, so if I were going to do this loop without going down to the gorge, I might choose the Santa Lucia Trail instead.
