The trail is in very good condition, and well marked. The desert looks very happy with a lot of new growth. The fastest in our group did the loop in 2 1/4 hrs - the longest (those that smell the roses and take pictures) took 4 hrs. FYI - the ranger said by next season, the double track part of the hike will not be included, and instead the trail will be diverted to South Canyon - much more scenic way back to the ranger station. Looking forward to it. This is not a "hard hike", and I'm a marginal active 67 yr old - please note.
