Fun challenging trail. All the reviews below hold true. The last portion is quite steep with loose rock, but i was able to comfortably hike it with my 6 month old son strapped to my back. As far as getting their the directions are spot on. You can park on either side of the bridge. The trail head is essentially the road closed sign across the bridge to the right going up the hill. Awesome views and rock formations at the top. We didn’t bother with the loop. When we got to the top we took a left at the fork and shortly after you get to the circle rock formation shown in the cover picture. To get to the rock formations and forgo the loop the trail out and back is only 5.5 miles

Will definitely do again.
