As some of the other reviews mentioned, the trail disappears once the view of the lake is gone. I used the GPS to loosely follow the trail. It is too bad, because some of the views are awesome, especially when up on the ridge. I do not advise as a family hike. Even the portion of the trail that is visible has long grass extending over the trail. Also, no trail markings. Pretty area though.

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.

Couldn't find the trail head. Unless it's the gate in the middle of weeds. ?
