The total mileage for the loop is about 11 miles with about 2,500' gain and 2,500' loss. Attached I will include an approximate elevation profile. Point 001 is Tom Jones Shelter (as you can also see from the map I will also attach which will include which Trails to follow in the loop).

You will pass 2 shelters along your way: the "Dutch Doctor" and "Tom Jones" shelters. In trips where I have taken first-time backpackers, I have turned this into an overnight backpacking trip and camped for the night at TJ Shelter. You can make this a day trip or a backpacking trip.

Directions:

There is overnight parking (if you decide to make it an overnight trip instead of a day trip) in a lot directly next to the Tuxedo train station located on Route 17-N off of I-287/87. From there you can pick up the Red Dot Trail located behind the train station and start the loop. I uploaded a map with the exact route of the loop highlighted for your convenience!
