We looped it so it was only 19-20 miles for us. First 4 miles have incline but after that it’s pretty flat. Different types of views and there’s a 2-3 mile meadow section. Saw a moose and a black bear. You can back country camp 7 miles in with food containers available. Wouldn’t necessarily recommend because the views don’t go high up, but it is pretty!

Be aware that back country site one has high bear activity. We set up camp there 7/17/19. At 5:30pm we watched a black bear across the river. As it climbed up the bank, he met up with a grizzly. As we watched those two I spotted a grizzly on our side of the river 75 feet away. We screamed at it to no avail. Needless to say, we broke camp and left in a hurry.
