Beautiful and quiet views. Don’t worry about doing the whole loop. Just park by the stairs or 1/2 mile up there are huge pull offs. Hike down to the stairs and you will have a great time. 1.5miles In you will hit an amazing rock outcropping Overlook that can see forever. You will have a few small water crossings but nothing bad. If you go near a rain you will see huge waterfalls cascading down signal mountain on the other side and the trail is typically pretty empty. Try it out!
