Well the first 4 miles is Moderate. The climb to the Twin Pillars is riddled with blow down. And the trail is STEEP. I'm sure that had something to do with 55lbs on my back. I went in from South twin pillars, crossed to the wildcat trail via the Belknap junction. Headed north to the wildcat trailhead. Then West to North Twin Pillars TH. Then south past the pillars and out. The loop was 27.8 miles total. Be advised that in June. The area is COVERED in poisen oak and ivy. Fortunately I'm not sensitive to either. Beautiful wilderness. Definitely volcanic. I spent 4 days in there.
