A long day hike and a good choice for an overnighter. If you aren’t in good physical condition, this hike might be too much for a day hike, but you have the option of making it an overnighter by staying at one of several backcountry campsites along the way. You can follow the loop in either direction, but this description follows the clockwise route.
