The actual distance from west TH to east TH and back is 11.6mi=2x5.8mi as Forest Service describes it: https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/siuslaw/recreation/recarea/?recid=42391 . My extension up to Cummins Peak that resulted in 12.9mi out and back was optional. Only a radio tower up there, no views.
The trail has no spectacular views and is a bit monotonous but quiet and well maintained.
