I took the white/yellow trails to do the loop as depicted. Its a moderate switch backing climb if you start to the left as others have said. Then it switchbacks down to a wooden staircase that leads to a wooden bridge over the Shepaug river. The return walk along the river is flat and offers nice views of the water. I ran out of time and will return to climb to the Pinnacle.

the map at the start of the trail of bee Brook is slightly off when you are trying to reach the quartz mine off the orange circle trail. hard to describe just how to get there but you do have to explore just a bit to find it.
