Loved this trail. Such an adventure with the wooden beams, the wood ladders and the metal "rungs" in the rocks. And going through the rock "caves" was so cool. I would definitely recommend reversing the loop. We took the orange trail up. It was steep in places. We had to use our hands and find good foot placement on some parts, but trying to do that on the descent would have been tricky. The descent on the blue to white trail was a very easy trek.
This is a great trail for older kids. Lots of snow and ice in late April. Definitely recommend the direction of the loop suggested here - white to blue to orange. The 1 mi descent is steep, rocky and fun but would have tired out little legs going up more than the 1.5 mi ascent along the AT. Challenging for kids and beautiful.
