This was a great hike. Mostly tree coved with a beautiful meadow shortly before the loop begins.

Lots of opportunity for wildlife and forest sounds.

A few areas of large loose rock on the accents/descents which I don't care to hike on but with the slope angle it is understandable why that material is there.
