Not a very well marked trail. There were periodic "trail" markings for the first five miles, then nothing. There was a metal rod at the base of an offshoot canyon that might have been the continuation of this trail, but I followed for a while and it seemed to be blocked.

I made it to a rock framed opening at about 5 and a half miles, which looks like the same rock layer that the photos of the window were probably formed from. I never found the rock window, nor could I continue the loop. At 6.5 miles I turned back for a 13 mile total out and back. A little disappointing, but I didn't want to try and follow the loop all the way if it wasn't going to be marked.

Easy grades throughout, trail is basically the dried bed of a river.
