Some parts of the trail overgrown. Near upper Truck trail connection to Fall Creek. Not well traveled up there. Trail out on Fall creek coming down from Barrell Mill Site, you have to cross on a log.

As of 4/2/17 the loop is not completely do-able. There is a mudslide off of the Fall Creek Trail. It's expected to open 4/12/17. It was very difficult to get around it. Otherwise, it's a nice loop. There are mountain views through the trees and it's very peaceful. The best part is walking along the creek. The hike is mostly shady, good for any time of the year.

Great trail for a hike in the redwoods. Not overly scenic but not a lot of people either.

Not to complain, but was hoping for some spectacular views given this is a ridge trail but it's trees, trees and more trees (pretty, but repetitive and these are not the giant redwoods as found in Fall Creek). Didn't complete entire loop having spent day exploring Fall Creek and several off trail shoots.
