Great trail. Amazing views. Appropriately rated as moderate. Could be difficult for kids at certain points if you go all the way to Sunset Peak. Saw a moose, lots of chipmunks and a marmot.

This was a great hike, accurately described as moderate use. The wildflowers are starting to explode now.

This loop is impossible to find just plan to do this as an out and back. I have never been lost on a trail and I couldn’t find the down section after pioneer peak to save my life. Ended up hiking over 11 miles after giving up and doing it out and back. Sunset peak is great and the whole hike is beautiful with wild flowers and lakes.
