This 250 mile loop connects the outermost trails, creating a perimeter loop.  Some exceptions on this route were made to due: discrepancies between maps, trail closures and routing to campsites as there is no dispersed camping in the park.  The route is designed to explore the most remote areas of the park, finding solitude and what I could only imagine as some bushwacking.
