It sounds like there will be members coming from all over. I'm thinking we should go for a run....Silverwood Lake - two routes Crestline at Miller Canyon or go up the front of the mountain at off 215 at Bailey Canyon. That do you all think?

Dominic is this do able in our 2wd F-250?

It goes through sand and rocky hills ok tight turns are a stopper some times.
Hello Daryl, I've only done half the trail and section I was on had a few tight turns and at times was a little narrow. Below is a description from http://www.backroadswest.com/

Road Trip
Forestry Road 2N33 (also known as Pilot Rock Road) is the dirt road that is showcased on this trip and the entire length is 11.5 miles. This is a great road for your truck or SUV with 2WD so long as it hasn’t rained or snowed recently. If it has, the road may be muddy and have deep ruts, requiring both high clearance and 4WD. During the winter months, many sections of the road are in the shade causing the road to be iced over. During such conditions, you definitely want to travel 2N33 with 4WD.

Starting out at 3,500 feet, 2N33 climbs gradually to an elevation of 5,000 feet. For the first 3.5 miles, it hugs the side of a ridge as it winds around Silverwood Lake. Then the road turns due east and rides on top of a mountain ridge for almost the rest of the way. While 2N33 is on this ridge, you will enjoy outstanding views in all directions.

At 2.7 miles, a rough spot in the road may be encountered. Here, you’ll find a water tank used for flood control on the left side of the road. Often, water from this tank flows out onto the road, which creates deep ruts. This typically occurs after long periods of rain or snow. If you don’t have a high-clearance vehicle with 4WD, you might wish to consider driving this road well after such weather has occurred.

Another obstacle to be aware of is ice. As 2N33 passes on the north side of the ridge or under the shade of trees, if it has been cold over the past week, ice will develop on the road. If the ice is extensive enough, it will be difficult for most vehicles to cross it.
