On this day I hiked the north loop only. See my review of the south loop here. Not much to add, really. Finished with 5.7 miles and 900' of elevation gain. The views from the north loop are perhaps a little better than from the south loop. Trail is well marked (mostly with cairns) and maintained. I saw deer tracks but the only wildlife I saw were lizards. The only people I saw were a couple whose path I crossed on the ascent to the ridge. Not a popular trail in MV, but a good one if you like solitude.
