This half of the trail is rough. More of an incline than the first half on Varney Creek and there are more fallen trees to hurdle over. There are several lakes on this loop. Wouldn’t recommend hiking it until mid-summer. At the top of the loop there was still quite a bit of snow pack (2-3 feet) when I went in May. Come mosquito prepared!
