The main loop is fairly well maintained and easy to follow, but most of the little side trails are now abandoned and there is little trace of them. Some looked promising but ended up terminating into dense woods with no sign of any trail. I ended up bushwhacking a few times to find the main trail again. Sometimes there are little yellow arrows to point you away from abandoned trails but other times you have to use your instincts. The part of the loop that is still maintained is quite nice, raising this trail from one star to three.
