This loop is open to both hiking and horse riding users. It was rebuilt into easier and wider switchbacks many years ago. Thus, the length increases. A nice twin wooden chair is set at the eastern tip of the switchbacks.

3/20/2018 (Tuesday) - The eastern route of the loop is quite different from what the AllTrails map shows, and OCM is more accurate. It becomes substantially longer, but more gently grading with switchbacks for horses. I moved very slow up, had lunch at the chair at the eastern tip of the switchback, missed the right fork to Phil's Connector after crossing the bridge.
