Hiked this trail on 7/22/17. The first 5 or 6 miles, going clockwise are pretty easy. Nice open trail and easy to follow. The last few miles are difficult as you descend down to the creek. The trail just disappeared! I ended up bushwhacking down the steep hill to the creek then climbed numerous downed trees. Finally found the trail 1/2 way down the creek but it was filled with blowdowns and impassable. Spent some time just walking down the middle of the creek until I came upon the trail once again. Easy hiking from that point back down the reservoir to the parking lot.
