This loop can be run in either direction, but running it clockwise allows you to run down the final section along the meadow, and gets the major climbing out of the way at the beginning. From the trailhead, follow the Sleepy S Trail as it heads toward Bergen Peak, before it turns and begins to wind through the open pine forest. At 0.5 mile, the Elk Ridge Trail branches off to the right; continue on the Sleep S Trail as it continues south before it begins to climb up west into the forest.
