Vehicle Types


Steep road crosses high pass between Coaldale and Villa Grove.

A gorgeous drive on a clear day with just enough challenge to make it fun. Two Forest Service campgrounds with hiking trails on the north side. End of trail at Villa Grove requires a long drive home if you don’t return the way you came. To avoid this situation, consider combining this route with Trail #44. You can reach the town of Bonanza on County Road LL56, which starts just north of Villa Grove. A gas station in Villa Grove is no longer in business.


Trail Ratings Defined

Rating applies to upper portion of trail only. Lower portions are easy. Travel only when dry and in the summer. During the spring and fall underground springs flow across the road, creating dangerous patches of ice on the narrowest part of the trail. High clearance and low range recommended.
