Did the loop. Nice walk. Some people might have an issue with crawling over the rocks on the top. Views are great.

This trail is so worth your time!! If you don’t look carefully you can miss the start. I recommend starting right as you get onto the NPS service road just to the right about 30 feet onto the road. It’s a stiff hike up but really cool scenery. 95% of the entire hike is woods with one side of the loop being completely different from the other. Then as you get to the top it’s like the entire world opens up with absolutely stunning views. I’m only more upset I forgot to hit stop on the recording of my hike with pictures so that didn’t record. The trail is still relatively easy to follow.
