Great hike! A bunch of really nice features: running Brooks, waterfalls, scramble, ledge/peaks. Definitely go counter clockwise to avoid coming down the blue trail scramble. It’s pretty steep and can be slippery. I went on a solo hike mid October weekday. Arrived at lot at 12:00 noon, it was full. Even some cars on the road. Still I only saw about 4 groups of 2-4 people on the whole hike. The waterfall on the north side of the loop is gorgeous. Plenty of spots to sit and have lunch or just soak it all in. Lots of rocks too, definitely wear boots. I stopped many times and hike pretty slow, and I finished within 4 hours. I’d hike it again!
