Trail length is given as distance, not hiking time, since time varies widely from individual to individual. The time spent by a budding naturalist strolling along a given trail will differ considerably from a backpacker trying to make a long day's evening campsite. For beginners, it is always best to take a day hike or two to establish the average rate of travel before attempting a long stretch of trail. Trail length is given for a complete loop, if described as such, or for a one-way trip, if the trail begins and ends at different locations.
