Great day for hiking. Ishibashi trail is in great shape. They just started clearing Paintbrush Trail and it is overgrown and closed about halfway down

Great hike, but check which way you want to come back so you have a way for a round trip

This loop is really made up of several different intertwining trails. My only complaint was that the trail that starts the ascent/second part of the loop wasn't labeled as the loop trail so I had to keep checking my map to see where to turn uphill - after I had already passed it and hiked more than I planned. Plus, there are a couple of trails closed for repair/maintenance so the outer loop isn't an option.
Otherwise it was a great trail and Ruca had fun! All other dogs were either on leash or extremely well behaved except one, which was a clueless owner with an untrained dog on leash who was very excited but didn't have very good manners.
