I’d recommend not doing this hike late Oct/early Nov because there is a one mile downhill and the trail is entirely rocky with loose screed-like debris. The time of year we did it, the trail was covered with leaves and it was impossible to pick good footing—ankle twisting and slipping downhill common amongst all of us. I think if one did the trail loop anti clockwise as opposed to the clockwise this app suggests, might be a better option for this time of year.
