Very well defined paths. Accurate maps located in the visitors center. Few great views, probably more appreciated when the leaves fall but the tree canopy is nice on a warm day.

love this loop. some of the hills are a bit challenging but with a couple of breaks you can make it. take at least 2 liters of water,camel backs work great. stay on trail and use deet spray or ticks can be bad. enjoy
