Be warned: If you zoom in closely, you will find several portions of this "loop" that look as if someone handed a crayon to a four-year-old. These are points where the author of this trail got lost, and guess what? That gets to be a part of your experience too! That's because this isn't actually a designated trail at all. Rather, it is a patchwork of various smaller trails that someone tried to string together with only marginal success. Even with phone in hand, when you come to a fork in the path, it can be very difficult to discern which way you are supposed to go next. So be wary!

In addition, several portions of the trail are either not well-maintained, or so sparsely trafficked that you can expect to be walking through almost knee-high brush.

Unfortunately, all of this takes away from what would otherwise be a very fun hike that takes you past multiple lookouts with views that do not disappoint, numerous rock formations, and even a handful of stream crossings.

So, if you want to enjoy this hike I would seriously recommend stopping at the visitors center and picking up a map of the local trail system and only using this as a loose template!
