We hiked clockwise around this loop. Good to get the ascent done in 5 miles. Some snow on the trail today, but not slippery. Beautiful views of southSister, Broken Top and Bachelor from the top. The descent down the back side had more snow on the trail, about 4 inches. Gorgeous hemlock forest. Mirror lake is pretty but small. Long slog back on Devils Lake -Elk Lake trail segment was a bit tedious with lots of loose soil and stones due to horse traffic. But overall a very nice hike with a lot of shade, good for summer.
