Very fun hike and really gorgeous hike. There was only one downed tree over the trail, so it looks like some cleanup has been done compared to a couple of years ago. Started the loop going north (counter-clockwise), though I think doing the hike the opposite way would be better . About 1 1/2 in, the trail ends as it merged with the stream. We had to walk on the stream about 1/4 of a mile before re-joining the trail. It has some nice views and some signs about the different trees and vegetation in the area. Not maintained very well, but that's expected with the little hiker traffic it gets (we didn't see any other hikers in the area). Would recommend it. My 9 year old nephew was able to do this hike, but I would still rank this as a moderate hike and not an easy hike.
