    The first 2/3 of this loop is a steady climb through shady, fern-covered forest on a nearly perfectly groomed trail. There are no great points of interest but the trail and the forest are both excellent. The last third of the loop brought this trail down to three stars for me. Although the expansive views are superb, the trail is a steep, wide, rocky road with crumbling rock that makes it tricky to navigate. It's hard to enjoy the view going down because you have to keep your eyes on the gravelly road. If I do the trail again, I'll go down via the same trail that brought me up... Bill's Trail.
