Tried to go to Reymert through U.S. 60, the road was closed by a steel gate about a mile and a half from the town.

Pretty sure Reymert Mine is on the harder side of easy, pretty darn close to moderate, if not moderate. Nevertheless, it was an absolutely gorgeous drive. I took it in a 2021 4Runner Pro. Scrapped the bottom a couple of times.

This route is a bit rougher than the last time we did it, but we’re going to leave the rating at easy. The route to Waypoint 05 is the same, but the alternate exit we show going out past Waypoint 06 is now CLOSED at a private property gate. You can still go this way to see the petroglyphs in a narrow, rocky canyon that used to be the entrance to Lower Woodpecker (now closed). Also, you can still exit south to Box Canyon by turning left at Waypoint 07.

There is a section of Cotton Road as you exit that is closed, posted Private Property. This is on the exit trail from Reymery. A bypass is needed. The trail is blocked at N33.19935° W111.24657°

There is a private locked gate along E. Cottonwood Canyon Road that you cannot pass. This is about 7km east of highway 79 along E. Cottonwood Canyon Road. Had to turn back and go back out the way I came in from Highway 60.
