We did the West loop. We chose the switchbacks to the right from the parking lot and it's pretty much up hill for 1.25 miles. I believe you gain about 700 feet or so of elevation in a mile but the switchbacks make that really manageable for even us novices. The view at the top is so worth the effort. A really nice 2 hour hike.
