Great challenging hike. Be aware that the first part of the trail is steep, with one section requiring you to climb a ladder if you start with the southern trailhead. If you start with the northern trailhead, its more gradual, but the descend is more steep and you will be descending the ladder. Whichever way you choose, the views are breathtaking and the area is very lush. Also, if you are feeling strong, continue onto EM Greenman to peak Green Mountain, come down Ranger, and then continue down the loop!

Great, beautiful hike! Do the steep part first (enter the loop at the downhill leg of the trail). Dogs loved it. Wear good hiking shoes because the first part of the trail is steep and very rocky and the last part of the trail is loose sand and gravel (gradual decline). The first half of the loop is definitely challenging but so worth it when you reach the top because the views are amazing! Enjoy God's beautiful creation, be safe and have fun!
