Strange trail at the start. The first 2-3 Miles are very scenic with creeks and small waterfalls culminating in Cascade Falls. Unfortunately these falls are a very touristy hike and I saw everything from couples with dogs to families with little kids. There aren’t may folks on the last six miles of the loop but it’s also not as scenic until you get towards miles 6-7 and you have some overlooks. Not a bad trails but feels like it isn’t terribly well maintained (tons of fallen timber and overgrowth along the trail), and in some places I had to use my AllTrails map to figure out which way to go. Definitely good exercise though and more of an “away from it” hike once you get past Cascade Falls.
