Nice one. If you plan on doing the loop, all of it, it is very diverse. Tight paths, steep ones, flowers, waterfalls...
Medium hard...but relaxing.
Get your maps or apps because the signs along the way are pathetic.

Beautiful trail. Nice wildflowers. Didn't see mountain lion.

The 1st mile is straight up which was challenging. Then you get to a lovely meadow and have a lot of options. There are lovely wildflowers, and I didn't see any wildlife but there were signs posted about recent mountain lion sightings that advise people not to hike alone. It was nice and shady, and good for a hot day. I'll definitely go again.
