Yes, the unusually dry summer has been good for the trail, and I've heard recent reports of rides with no issues reported now that the recent deadfall has been cleared. Hoping to get there soon to help out Joe and assess a few spots for improvement.
Generally, yes - the trailhead has a kiosk at the northeast corner of Outer and Tireman with map, and throughout the trail there are post with arrows. About a mile in there is a easy/hard split (easy -left, harder - right) that needs a better sign, but they rejoin right after. At the top of the loop one must exit to Joy, cross the river on the sidewalk, then return to the woods, and likewise at the bottom along Tireman. This is indicated on the map online and kiosk.
Rode the trail yesterday evening; first time in about 2 years. I was impressed how nice the west side of the trail is - the tread has firmed up very nicely, and HoDaddy's trail work was obvious - thank you! The east side of the trail is a bit overgrown at the moment, but is very navigable as is. There are a couple of spots on the east side that could be tweaked for slightly better flow, but overall its a fun ride.
