The 3rd edition book says unlicensed vehicles are allowed on the County Road 10 (the northern half). This no longer is true. Unlicensed vehicles are now banned from the entire route. The 2016 MVUM (White River N.F., Dillon Ranger District) still showed an unlicensed route east of the pass. Connected routes include F.S. 611, 611.3A, 593 and 597.
