This is a great trail, but very hard to follow. I still have yet to successfully complete the loop, and after trying twice from both directions it’s safe to say that part of the trail is lost. From the south prong trail you can make it all the way along the ridge line, but as soon as you leave the ridge line and turn north the trail runs cold. Don’t attempt the loop, just go out and back, or connect the routes with country road 70. Fantastic campsites along this trail
