Nice hike and not difficult (counterclockwise). Clockwise there are two short scrambles. My 45 lb dog had no problem with the scrambles. She did one twice

Great trail, nice and easy inclines with cool views. We took our two your nephews and small dog. Very muddy but that’s to be expected.

HikingGreat!

From Claudius’s Den then back to the parking lot (going counter clockwise) was absolutely gorgeous. From parking Lot to Claudius’s Den was sort of unremarkable (again going counterclockwise). Important note; Trail head from parking lot to go clockwise is paved and just before you cross a little bridge into the parking loop. Didn’t even see it so wound up going counterclockwise. The scrambles up and down are not that hard. We had two dogs with us, one large and one very small. We only had to carry the small dog for a moment down “almost perpendicular” We struggled a little bit to find the actual den after lunch on huge, beautiful rock outcropping.. If you are facing the big open rock outcropping, go left toward the blue trail but make a quick right to find your way under the big rock outcropping.

The trail is closer to 5 miles. Snow and ice in some spots and very muddy. The last mile of the hike was very rocky and required some rock scramble. Might be easier to go clockwise instead of counter clockwise as recommended by the map if you prefer to go up scrambles instead of down.

We did this loop just as the site says to do it. Clockwise, so the hike up to Almost Perpendicular came early, rather than late when we were tired. It's hard to find the caves at Claudius Smith's Den, but worth looking; they're cool (and google him; the history is fascinating). Worth going up top there, too; the views are surprising (we paused there for lunch). Some muddy portions, and of course lots of dead leaves to make things slippery, but overall it was a crisp, cool, grey day for a hike.

HikingGreat!

Really beautiful and well marked. We took a detour that added 3 miles but it was worth it to see the lakes. There are a few pretty vertical places that were hard to do, so would recommend walking sticks. Great views!
