Great hike! My girlfriend's brother jumped into the Emerald Pool at the beginning of the trail. According to everyone we ran into on the hike we were going around the loop in the wrong direction. We should have taken the left trail when it splits instead of going up the right to hit Eagle Crag first. It is a very long hike for anyone who isn't used to hiking. We got started at like 10 am and walked out of the woods when it was dark after 8 pm. Also saw a horned owl while on the hike. Views are incredible.
