Overall, the trail is a bit rougher but still rated Easy. Boulder Wagon Road, that I show as F.S. 149, has been renumbered to 501.1. This road is a bit rougher now, and should probably be rated Moderate.

Drove this trail 9/2018. Great trail with lots of scenery and interesting history. Very windy at the top. Trail was easy to follow.
