A popular tourist road because of its easy access. A relatively short drive to outstanding views. Road does not go all the way to top. Enjoy famous Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. A few small camp spots along route. Unlicensed vehicles are allowed, but area can get congested. USFS chalet at end of road is open to public.

I rode up Mount Princeton Rd in my Jeep Gladiator on Sep 8, 2022. I loved the drive. Along the way I saw hikers, mountain climbers, and a few Wheelers. The road was in great shape. The lower half is dirt. The upper part is a little rocky. The last half mile is across a scree field reminiscent of Ophir Pass. I was lucky that when I met traffic that we could easily find a place to pass each other. Most of the road is narrow. I’d love to go back but I would want to do it when there is a lot of traffic.
