This is a gorgeous trail and a fun way to get to the humpback rocks. Although this loop is longer (3 miles up instead of 1 mile up), it’s less strenuous than the steep, short, populated way to get up to the rocks. The total trail is 4.2 miles. This trail is mostly rock and can be a little wet so make sure you have proper shoes! This trail takes you through a beautiful forest path that zig zags up to the top and then you’ll follow the shorter path down (1 mile down) back to the parking lot. we went after a rainstorm and it was gorgeous being up there with the clouds! As an experienced hiker with a stop at the top for the view it took my 4 hours. Definitely a great hike!
