1st trip
Expecting masses we decided to give this loop a try and it hit on all cylinders. Weather was perfect, saw no others the entire hike, and saw some wildlife, elk and deer, along the way.

We started from the Hatchery Trail Head and hiked in a CW direction. The section of the Highline trail we hiked to Myrtle Trail was really nice. I had low expectations reading some of the posted triplogs but those were greatly exceeded. Myrtle Trail was a great accent to the rim. Easy to follow and killer views. Picked up the General Trail for the walk across the rim which was easy to follow and very pleasant. Used some old forest roads to connect The General to Babe Haught Trail to close out the loop. Will definitely do this loop again.
