The full Round Valley loop is a mixed bag. Except for the long road portion that you can’t get around, in cool weather with turned or fallen leaves it’s one of the state’s ten best hikes. But summer, with ticks, heat, snakes, seasonal trail closures, and a crappy road walk, it’s a long slog to avoid.
