Still one way, South to north. Ranger I talked to said it will not reverse direction anytime soon.

One way, south to north. I like it this way, completing the loop for the one way blue Lisa killough trail. Often wide fire road-ish, but frequently narrows.

Around the lake is a nice easy jaunt doable by anyone. However the last section is increasingly steep and will require your lowest gears
