It is a trail as much as a deer path. Overgrown, which is consistent with Light traffic rating. Lots of birds and insects. Dip yourself in DEET if going during buggy months. My new nickname is ‘lumpy’.

I hiked the entirety of the Grand Loop (White) starting at the New York Brigade parking area. The map says 6.5 miles for the whole loop plus .3 miles each way to/from the parking area. So should've been 7.1 miles. My phone only registered 6.2 miles, and it took me just barely under 2 hours to complete so I tend to think my phone was more accurate.

I did it clockwise. Not much to see here. Some water early on was nice. Parts had some decent inclines/declines, but the time it took me should tell you how difficult it was. Trails were well traveled and very easy to navigate. At the bottom of the loop you cross over a 2 lane 40 mph road twice. One crossing was almost blind because of curves in the road. Not ideal.

Don't know if I'd really rate it as Moderate. But I suppose it wasn't quite Easy either. Probably somewhere in between.
