Great hike
This hike is nice. The directions were very well written and were easy to follow. The difficulty is balanced and your hard work pays off so well with the fire tower. It is possible to really push through this hike in about 2 and a half hours. I didn't see any bears or rattlesnakes on the few times I did this hike. Maybe theyre scared of the thru hikers campsites.

Rattlesnakes and bears
Hmm, when I hiked this loop about 10 years ago, I ran into five (5) bears on the Rattlesnake Swamp Trail portion of the hike.  Didn't see any bears or snakes on my most recent hike of this loop (last month), though.
