We drove this route last month (Sept. of 2013). Very smooth dirt road, which was surprising, considering the remoteness of the area. The trail opens into a fantastic view of the foothills looking toward Auberry as you reach the top of Musik Mountain.There was a huge waterfall with a great deal of water flowing, (I believe this was part of the San Joaquin tributary). For the time of year, this was a huge and wonderful surprise!
