A lot of switchbacks which I’m not biggest fan of, but it makes the trail very moderate. Also, my dog got into a plastic ziploc freezer bag with someone’s half eaten lunch right after Rattlesnake Pool. Also because the views are better coming down White Cairn. Too much spring snow, mud, ice, and ruts to drive that road now unless you have a Jeep. Great views and nice moderately used trail. First time attempting the loop as a family.

The best part of the hike is a dip in the emerald green “Rattlesnake Pool” just off the Stone House Trail, a gorgeous swimming hole and waterfall.
