Beautiful trail - would be best trekked in October, as the leaves are brightest at this altitude during that time. We hiked in November and it was still stunning. The views from the crest trail at White Horse Hill were worth the climb (trail tops out right about 10,000 ft).

Beautiful views, follows a ravine, well shaded in the forest. The first few miles are a slow descent but quickly turns into a steep scramble during the last half mile.

This loop is possible. I just ran it last Friday (11/3/17). It does have a sketchy section that you have to down climb about a 6 foot, nearly straight down rock shoot. Very beautiful, but please understand what you’re getting yourself into if you choose this route.

Awesome trail for running. Saw a moose, wild turkeys, and several deer. As long as you give them space, there's nothing to worry about. A bit muddy in spots, but that's part of the fun of trail running. Also saw bear tracks, but no bears. Definitely a favorite.
