Not accurately described by the homestead map or staff or even the sign at the beginning. The deerlick loop itself is 3.2 miles, uphill the first third and pretty much downhill the last 2/3. From the resort and back, closer to 4 miles and around 1.5 hours, but still not the 2.5 hour trip that the sign suggests. A decent view about 30 minutes up but nothing spectacular in the summer due to lots of tree coverage.

While uphill throughout much of the first half, the spectacular views make it completely worth it!
