We hiked the trail in Mid-November. The weather was perfect. Mid-60s during the day and no wind. Absolutely beautiful and a great hike if you are looking for something different. You won’t find a landscape like this in many places. The silence of the place is astounding. The trail is well marked and most of it could be rated as moderate. Although the south side of the trail is more difficult and calls for lots of climbing up and over sand dunes; which can be fun but also a bit challenging for some. Eventually the trail smooths out and is fairly easy. I would recommend starting on the south side of of the loop in order to get the difficult sections out of the way early.
