anyone saying the trail is in good shape clearly did not do the whole trail. The upper end the lake the trail is nearly impossible, trees are not only fallen over the trail, but on the trail (like the hole length of the tree is on the trail so the trail vanishes) we lost the trail on several occasions and turned back after only a few minutes.
I've tried two different parts of the trail now by the upper trailhead and both were impassable. Maybe the part of the trail by the Dam is in good shape but the other end of the trail is not. Do not expect to be able to complete the whole loop unless you have a chainsaw and machete it's in desperate need of maintenance.
