When I did this loop yesterday, the distance was 5.7 miles. There were some detours around fallen trees and a number of flooded trails that added to the hike. The trail was well marked for most of it. It was a little tricky finding the way around some of the flooded areas and a few fallen trees. I broke trail for about half the loop so it should be easy to follow now, just follow the snowshoe and footprints tracks in the tricky areas.
