Follow 4×4 trail through two historic gold mining towns.

The trail was very rocky at points but very doable in a stock Jeep Sahara 2019. The last section coming into poker flat from Howland flat was the most challenging and I had to roll a couple of large rocks out of the way to feel confident I wouldn’t damage my Jeep. I’m relatively new to four-wheeling so a more experienced person may not have to any issue with the rocks….I was being overly conservative. We did not encounter any snow on the trail. The creek just outside of Poke flat was flowing with 6-7 inches of water in it and maybe 20 feet across. Very easy to pass through. Beautiful area and I will definitely return to explore more of that area. The campground at Poker flat had a couple of family’s camping there but had room for more.
