This loop is a beautiful forest walk, though perhaps a bit long for the amount of scenic exposure. The shorter leg leads to the Imp Face cliff, which offers some of the best views of Mt. Madison in the White Mountains. Because the trail is short, the cliff may be crowded, at least during the summer season.
The first part of the trail starts shallow and smooth, crosses a pretty stream and eventually climbs steeply to the top of the Imp Face cliff (which can be seen from the road when driving north from Pinkham Notch). The second part of the trail is long but largely flat or shallowly descending. It is pretty forested country but offers very few views considering its length and situation.
