So I did the loop, map days 9 miles but my Fitbit says 11. I did it counter clockwise. Trail is super well established. Didn’t feel like I got great payoff for views, mostly ruined but towns in the valley below. Hot and dusty but decent shade to rest in. I did NOT enjoy the switch back going down from the canyon- narrow and steep drop offs got my nerves up, but I made it. Waterfall was small. Loved all the sugar pines though!
