No seasonal closures.


Trail Ratings Defined

Moderate. Much of the route is an easy two-track along sidehills. One short section of shelf road is slightly more intimidating. Do NOT drive when wet. Even a slight rain turns trail dangerously slick and gums up tires. When dry, trail is suitable for stock, high-clearance, 4-wheel-drive SUVs and pickup trucks.
