Southern section of the loop is not well maintained, several downed trees, muddy creek crossings and we lost the trail at one meadow. We added some berms (I know bad but someone is going to get lost) to help people see the trail after we walked around a bit. I suggest going down the way you go up. Lovely trail and views.

This trail is great but doesn’t really go all the way to mt emmons! There’s a really sketchy scramble you have to do to get that far. That being said, even just hiking up to the ridge and walking along it is a breathtaking view and rewarding hike! We went on a Sunday in June and it wasn’t very crowded at alllll. Really great views the whole time, lots of meadows and wildflowers too.

The trail is more like 10 miles and 2,700 elevation if you go to the peak. Lots of loose gravel as you approach Gunsight Pass.
