The drive is 10 Miles with some narrow sections where you will get pin striping and the hike is only .5 miles total.

I'm still going to run the trail. Saturday starting from the coordinates listed at 9:30.

Hope to see you there.

Sierrabob and Mari

Sierrabob and Mari did the run solo. We waited until 10 am just incase someone arrive late.

Opinion, this trail would have been trouble if we had multiple vehicles and met other vehicles coming up. There are several stretches where the road is narrow and overgrown and with a scary drop off. Backing up would be hazardous.

We made it fine in our 4x4 pickup but did get minor body damage because we do not have rock sliders crossing over what they call a rock slide. I could have avoided the damage if I would have taken my time. Hast makes waste.

Over all a good trail for Quads and side by sides or motorcycles. A forest service note at the beginning of the trail said not passable in a full size vehicle but did the trail because one of our new members had done the trail the week earlier.

I think this might not be a good first trip for me and my full sized truck.
