This loop is more moderate than hard. Really enjoyed it though. Walked around a bend on Lead Cove and a doe was in the middle of the trail. It must be accustomed to hikers because it slowly ambled off the trail so I could pass.
Bote Mountain had a fairly large blow down that was not any fun to climb over.

This was a hard hike, but it was my fault for overlooking the hard rating when I meant to choose a moderate hike. FWIW, my Apple Watch says it was a 7.38 mile hike.
