This is not a loop trail. The "trail" disappears completely a little over halfway through and much of the trail before that (after leaving the lakes) is completely covered by tumbleweed. The only way we were able to complete the loop was by following the GPS on this map step by step, requiring well over a mile of complete off trail route finding through "sticker" infested ground cover. This then ends with a nearly vertical decent down the side of the hill immediately south of where you start. Recommend only completing this to the overlook and back (the only part in the map that is an out and back detour) and then return to the trail the way you came. Hike was nice up to that point.
