A very scenic alternative to US-395 through the Walker River canyon with a number of forest service roads diverting off to other explorable areas. The southern portion is a gentle, flat, and amply wide dirt surface with rolling hills that do more rocking as you proceed north. You'll enjoy the descent into the canyon in the middle of the route, provided that the narrow road that slopes toward the cliff is not enhanced by snowfall. The ascent up the north side of the canyon is a decent incline and quite rocky, although 2WD would suit nearly every day of the week.
The only clearance issues on this route would be the occasional basketball size rocks that have fallen to the road from up the slope, but they are an easy fix.
The northern portion as it heads into the town of Walker enjoys a high perch above the river and views of the tiny 395 highway below. I wouldn't call this route "the" adventure but it can get you closer. Recommend the route east from this road to Boulder Flats.
