Great loop and really enjoyed seeing some new areas along the way. The abandoned Peralta Trail was difficult to follow which is to be expected. To our surprise we saw another hiker off-trail while we were checking out the area north of Bluff Spring Mountain. He was heading in the opposite direction so we never made direct contact.
