Started at Cedar Breaks Saturday at 9:00am and made it to Tejas Camp at around 2:15pm.  Paid $6 and stayed the night.  Nice place to camp (water, trash cans, toilets, tent pads, and plenty of trees to setup a hammock).  Headed out around 8:00am the next morning and completed the loop at about 2:30pm.  Lots of mountain bikers on the north side.  My only real complaint is the lack of trail markings once you get to Russell Park and Jim Hogg (no signs telling you which way to complete the loop).  Overall a nice hike that offers many benefits.  Next time I'll try and complete the loop in one day- hike on!
