This is a variation of a popular loop that eliminates climbing UP Braggin' Rights. It ends up being a great warm up to get to the Merlin trail head rather than grinding up Braggin' Rights from the parking lot while dodging people coming down Braggin' Rights.

Overgrown vegetation on the northern sections towards Telephone. You can hardly see the winding trail in some sections. Otherwise, the trail is pretty dry.
