The trail has a nice mix of elevation gain and loss as well as creek for more than half of the loop. Its especially great during summer time, because you can hike or run and work up a nice sweat then dip in May of the pools along the trail.

It a beautiful hike definitely hard. You go two miles up on the way back. We went with 7 and 10 year olds and they did better then me :) they are very athletic. I say I would prefer something shorter. Climbing up is not fun. Took us 3 hrs and 15 with stops for playing in the water.

Wonderful trail with varied scenery and lots of shade. Take a right when you get to the loop to make it easier - otherwise you'll be climbing steep rocky terrain on the way back. Highly recommend this trail!
