Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Parking is limited. I parked across from the Miles Notch Trail. Room for about 5 or 6 vehicles. I was the only one there today. More parking available further up Hut Road. Parking should not be problem, since these trails don't see the traffic.

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All crossings were easy. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Lots of blow-downs on all the trails, some very large crawl-unders. Overall the trails were in good shape. Red Rock Trail could use a haircut in sections. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Long hike for doggie, but plenty of water along the route. 
Bugs
Bugs: Skeeters and flies out today, but not too bad.

Comments
Comments: I did the loop clockwise. Great Brook Trail is a road walk for awhile. Signage is there, but the last turn on the forest road has a very weathered arrow, which is hard to see. If you miss the turn and continue on the forest road, there is a large boulder in the middle of the forest road, only about 100 ft. past the arrow. That will tell you that you missed it. Great Brook trail to the Red Rock Trail was pretty good, with some steeps, but good footing. Red Rock Trail was a roller coaster, up and down and up and down, very exhausting. I saw two others on the trail today heading over to Speckled Mt. If you want a good work out, try this hike.
