for a moderate trail, it was pretty easy. once you get past the Lodge site, the loop gets tougher.

Lovely wildflowers, but a little confusing as beginning of trail is marked by white blazes then loop changes to blue. Thank goodness for the app map!

Very nice 2 hour stroll with some elevation difference at the beginning of the walk and at the loop The blue portion of the trail at the loop is pretty steep, so you just have to decide if you want to walk up it or down. Two hours or so all told.
