I would only recommend this trail as an out and back, and only if you are looking for a good workout in the first 2 miles of elevation climb. My suggestion would be to turn around once you hit the ski resort. The trail is not marked at all after this so unless you have the GPS loaded with the map, you will either take an unshaded dirt road all the way back, or find yourself on federal land. The actual trail back, should you find it, is in poor condition with the remaining section leaving you walking on the shoulder of the road. The first 2 miles do offer nice views of the lake and shaded forest, and like I said it was a great workout for the first 1200 feet or so of straight up elevation climb with only a few switchbacks along the way.
