We completed this hike yesterday. We went clockwise leaving Moore’s knob until last. That’s a difficult climb to end with but I didn’t feel like heading up a mile of steps at the beginning. Next time we will try counterclockwise, starting at Moore’s knob. It was very beautiful and satisfying to complete. Not much traffic except around hanging rock. Fantastic views. Take plenty of water. My son who has had four heart surgeries managed this without difficulty, so not too bad at all. Great day hike.
