    Fun trail. Mid-April on a Friday, the weather was perfect (mid-50s) and just a couple other groups on the trail. The sandstone sections were my favorite. Not a lot of vertical on this trail, mostly pretty level. The trails are pretty well marked with cairns, but the signs aren't terribly clear, so I backtracked a couple of times when I realized that I was on the wrong trail. I ran this trail, and I admit that I was a bit slower than I expected. It was hard to keep a good pace in the dry creekbed on the south section of the Big Spring trail (southwest section of this loop.) Also I frequently had to stop to scan for the next cairn. I had a good time, though. I recommend it.

    Did this hike on a Saturday in late September. Got to the trailhead around 7:30 am and we were one of the first few cars there. The trail eventually got a little busier, but it never felt crowded by any means. Took about 5.5 hours to do the 11+ mile loop (including a 30 minute stop), but it never seemed overly difficult. The trail is well marked overall. A few tricky spots along the way, but those spots are a lot of fun to navigate. The landscape is just stunning! Definitely one of the highlights of our nearly week-long trip to Moab. I'd highly recommend putting this hike on your list.
