The trail was really flat and rather boring for 90% of the hike. We met up with the whirlwind loop and decided to add it to the hike. It gave us a bit of elevation change and nice views we would not have gotten staying on mustang. Do yourself a favor and don't go to the trailhead that Alltrails has, but go past the right turn on 313 (this turn is 200 yards away from what they call the trailhead) and find the parking area just up 313 on the left. That parking area will get you right back to mustang (and several other trails). This will avoid having to cross 313 on your way out and on your back. We did about 9 miles total and for the most part, it was flat and disappointing.
