beautiful sunny day and a really nice hike. it is more than an "easy" hike due to decline and inclines. we took the left path to start the loop and at first it sent very scenic. as you get further to the bottom if the loop in the valley it becomes more scenic. the incline going back to the start is a good workout but not onerous. overall a really nice trail and workout. It is not well-marked beyond the start so keep your eyes open for the worn path. if it snows it will be hard to find the trail through certain sections.

Very nice trail. Well laid out. I started the loop toward the right. Reason is the way the last mile won't be straight up hill. So at the half way point, in the meadow I only had a half mile of hard uphill with the rest a gradual uphill. I did t want to have the last mile to be straight uphill. You might want to keep that in mind. Also it is a rocky trail st the start, so mind your ankles. Overall very fun diverse trail. I'd be hesitant to bring small children unless you want to carry them a good portion of the way.

Ramble on, down into the hidden valley. Beautiful trail for those who can appreciate high desert and colorful geology. Often this trail is covered in rock or small patches of badland. Certainly my foot will fall on its loveliness again...
