If you really hustle on the long steep outbound leg and don’t stop to rest, it’s possible to reach a spur trail that allows you to return on the more picturesque rim trail. We never attempt this because our group simply walks too slow. But this time an aggressive sub-group broke away from the start to try to make the loop in two hours. The rest of us kept our normal pace.
This is the group I was with, undergoing the customary group shot at this clearing. Right after this, our speedy group appeared and rejoined us, demonstrating definitively it’s possible to do the rim trail loop in two hours …. though one person in that group fell behind — no one waited for him — he couldn’t find the spur trail and had to retrace his steps back.
