We took the right loop 2nd alternate. It's about an 8 mile hike. The right loop is a small path wide enough for one person. We did the hike early April and were lucky not to meet a single person, horse or bike rider. A beautiful hike with a nice scenery overlooking the lake and through mostly wooded area.

The trails yesterday were in pretty good condition after overnight rain. We only saw one other rider so it was great having the trails to ourselves. Mostly gradual climbing and fast descents. Some of the single track is built along the some steep hillsides so ignore the surrounding and gorgeous views and keep eyes on trail, unless taking a break. Beautiful views at the overlook.

From car to car it's actually 8.5 miles. Beautiful hike and loved the trails. Felt sorry for the lady whose husband drug her through on a bike going in the not recommended direction. The hills in that direction were killers. What I loved most is with three of our four hikers having knee, feet, and hip issues, we really wanted a hike without the steep climbs most of this region has to offer. And we still got the beautiful views a peak climb would offer!

Mouse Branch trail was fun. You can move at a fast pace. Slope up to the overlook is a little tricky. Overall I think it should rate as an easy-moderate. Good trails, but lots of rocks.
