This was a great trail but not easy. The first 2 miles on the east side of the trail is really nice but after that the 1600+ elevation gain was pretty steep at times -- I wouldn't recommend it for small children or beginning hikers. I noticed a lot of the 5 star rating were by hikers that went out and back but didn't do the full 6.8 full Loop.

Great stretch of the legs. Go as far as you want before turning back or just finish the loop..... Great views. Good beginner trail.
