Well, it's not a groomed dirt road anymore, the summer monsoons have washed the switchbacks and quite a few of the washes out. We went with a group of 4X4 Toyotas and had a blast. Just the right amount of technical with awesome views. The switchbacks put the rigs under some stress as the temps were 105+ but we knew that was a possibility going into it. Lots of cool places to stop and enjoy the scenery, landscape changes galore as you go from low desert to pine. Overall an enjoyable drive and one that would be even better at lower temps. Also, a few places looked like they would be pretty great campsites, not too far from the trail but traffic didn't seem that heavy.

Lots of trails but please take out what you bring in and help protect this land.

I did this trail approx. 15 years ago and it was an actual off road trial. Now it has been groomed and graded and is nothing more than a dirt road. The scenery is nice but it is not as fun of a drive as it used to be

Great views throughout the trails and once you go high enough the terrain makes you feel like your up north!

First time jeep ride through this mountain. Amazing 70-degree January day. Saw deer, a road runner, a crested cactus, a cave, a mine, an elephant-trunk-shaped rock formation and a heart rock. Fabulous day with friends
