Trail leads to an unnamed summit. Nice views of green mountain and red rocks. Trail has some extremely steep section interspersed with gradual slopes. I completed it in 2hrs. Recommend trekking poles if you have knee issues.

This was one of the worst trails I’ve ever hiked. It’s alongside a road most of the time was covered in ice and mud, totally in the shade unlike the name suggests and the loop isn’t supposed to be a loop! The looping back part is blocked off and the trail is hard to find. Don’t waste your time on this one. There are tons of other beautiful trails around here
