This is a beautiful trail, rather steep, but well worth the work. My two kids love it and there is a great picnicking spot at the top that overlooks the valley. If you continue one to loop 3, you come to a trail that leads off onto the ridge, follow that and you get to a fire road, follow that and you can loop to Leverich Canyon, a nice 4 hour hike or so. Shuttle cars and get a map of the forest service roads so you don't miss the trail head to Leverich Canyon.
