The road is closed where the loop begins, but you can still go pretty far. There is an Emmert Falls offshoot that’s very nice, unpaved.

This trail was lovely. So glad I went. Wide asphalt for the first 1.5 miles. easy terrain for dogs, running, kiddos, elderly. So many ground fed waterfalls. main attraction is about 1 mile in. plenty of benches and shade. it's worth it to keep going to the Emmit Falls area. Moderate dirt trail with a flat gravel loop option. There's a nice picnic area at Emmit Falls.
