I made the entire loop today with my mother and my dog. I would also suggest turning left first since that will allow you to go downhill at the most steep part of the trail. The initial incline is steep but it gets less intense after you go around the first corner. There is a beautiful view of Montgomery Reservoir on the left, mountains to the front and a valley below. I've seen deer in the valley on a prior hike. The thing I love most about this hike is the 360 view of the area if you go to the very top of the mountain. There are some very steep parts to this trail and the air is thin but it is worth the hike.
