Description

The Outer Loops is a side trail off of Elk Traverse. The most common way to hike it is on the way back, or heading South. If going this direction, the trail starts with a long downhill. It's not terribly steep.

Your downhill ends in a wash of sorts then the trail climbs back up to Elk Traverse. Along the way, you'll hit a few switchbacks. The Outer Loop is a great alternative to coming back on Elk Traverse.
