    Nice! I'm going to be heading out there again this weekend to do the loop starting at Boat Ramp and going counter clockwise around for the first time. Hopefully the heat won't be as bad and this rain we are suppose to get will help out with the loose dirt situation.

    Thatís definitely the best direction! Yeah itíll help kinda clump some of that rock sand up and maybe not be so loose and slippery!

    Thats what the local facebook group recommended as far as direction. So far I have only done the east overlook all the way down and through the small intestine and back out. I am just worried about that massive climb right off the start.

    Itís really not terrible. Youíll walk the switchbacks, but Everyone does. On the heat thing, I started out at 3:15 in the afternoon so it was just really hot and high sun. It was pretty brutal.

    One of my favorite loops there if I canít find someone to shuttle with is to start at the parking lot halfway to the top - it ties into live wire at the 1 to 2 split. Itís not a bad climb up from there at all, then you can do all the top you want to, and finish with that run back down. Usually itís pretty easy to find someone to shuttle with though.
