Beautiful view, hilly but not too difficult.

I prefer loops in general, but it's true that doing the bottom part of the loop is a bit pointless.

Amazing hike! Easy parking at Glacier Point. The trail was not heavily trafficked. The trail was a great mix of up and down with amazing views of the valley. The start is a lot of elevation gain but stick with it it evens out and gets easier.
