Road starts easy but gradually gets steeper with more embedded rock. Most high-clearance, 4-wheel-drive SUVs can manage this route, but careful tire placement may be needed, depending on clearance.

The gate shut can’t access the lake too much water in the stream.

I love this trail. The book doesn't mention the dates it is open but it is only fully open from July 15th to October 15th every year according to the MVUM. Rated a 4 only because Chinns Lake trail is just a little better!
