We drove this in our cross country Volvo XC 70 all wheel drive and it was a breeze. Had to move a few 20 pound rocks from the roadway and crossed two creeks where the water was about 8 inches deep but it went smoothly. In some places the road is hazardous and has some wash outs that need to be carefully traversed. About two thirds of the way the road becomes so narrow and slanted that it was quite scary. We took our time and stopped several times to explore and take pictures. It took us 4 hours to drive the 43 mile logging/forestry roads and the map worked perfectly as this would be an easy place to get lost. I downloaded the map before we started as there is NO SIGNAL on 90% of the trail. Beautiful scenery and crisp clean air!
