This was a fun trail, the loop took my friend and I 2 hours and was 3 miles, with only some short stops. It definitely gets your heart pumping, there are quite a few steep ascents with lots of rock, and then you'll steeply descend, it will be flat for a bit, and then another ascent. Not a simple up on the way there and down on the way back, which makes it more fun I think. Unfortunately the Eliot Tower is currently closed for renovations for the fall, so the views weren't great at the top, but still great to be out there!

Very nice hike, moderately difficult there are some steep climbs but overall a very rewarding hike with spectacular views for anyone who is familiar with rocky steep terrain.
