Bradley K. on PCT: CA Section D - Highway 15 to Auga Dulce
We started off of HWY 2 and hiked east, didn't see much for about 2 miles and then hiked back west across under the freeway for about 10 miles. The views were awesome but would recommend the west portion for someone in good shape as it was a lot of climbing. super fun though.
sure it says moderate off road difficulty; however I know for a fact that if I had a 2WD & or stock suspension, I would been stuck at least twice. I warn any amateurs to be cautious and ready for a few oh shit moments. other than that, I made it out alive and had a great time..
Tried it with a stock 4WD SUV, everything was pretty easy until I reached a point a few miles up the hill where even with ~8 inches of ground clearance, it'd be too risky to go through because of the tall rocks on the trail. I'm definitely coming back when I have a skid plate. The road is mostly narrow so if you have to pass someone, it'll be a little tough but I guess that goes with the territory.
