Very beautiful views around the top loop and is a decent place to stop if you have kids for lunch. I didn't see any large animals but did notice deer and bear scat. The left trail entrance has more sun exposure than the right trailhead entrance so if you are going in the heat of the day the right side would be better. It's a steady incline all the way up and steady decline down. It's safe for kids; no drop offs and my 4 year old did it with ease. There's no bathrooms but a portable restroom at trailhead.
