Only took the Outer Loop trail (Yellow markers). This was a nice loop from the Fish trail head to the Dynamite Hill trail head. However we were unable to continue on the trail because it was temporarily closed. We took a different trail to continue the loop. We followed the light purple trail back to the Fish trail head, however, this trail might be ok in the winter, it was very hard to follow in the summer, good thing there were a lot of markers to find our way back.
