Did the loop in reverse, so a lot more climbing for a good workout. Feels like this is a longer trek than listed. Strava tracked at 7+ miles. Finished the loop in three hours, but I travel a little faster than most. Lots of fallen trees on the trail and some broken signage at intersections from the recent storm. Didn’t see anything that indicated a spur at the top for the “amazing views,” so not sure if the storm knocked them down. The creek and waterfall were bone dry. So I left the trail pretty defeated. No magical views or waterfall. Sections of the trail were pretty with wild flowers and greenery. Bring bug spray for swarms of flies.
