This is a really enjoyable trail. Beginning from Rogers Lake, it climbs in either direction, through a nice variety of open and treed areas. The clockwise climb feels a little steeper, though both climbs have a few rocky stair-steps to get up and over. The top of the trail intersects with the Rogers Lake Connector from Ft Tuthill and the Loop Trail. Downhill (either direction) is nice swoopy fun. The trees open up in several places for good views of the peaks and the caldera.

 Challenging for a beginner. We went clockwise which I learned after is the harder way. Lots of hill climbs for first 1/2 of loop. Felt like the hills would never stop!! Haha. Downhill is rocky and somewhat technical. Gold Digger loop is much more challenging then the Rogers lake connector
