It was a nice easy drive that cars could easily do with out bottoming out. Private property surrounded it and didnt see the campgrounds.

The road was fun to drive on and there was a small creek to hang out at. The trail is surrounded by private property, so you can't really deviate from the main road or explore at all. You can drive this road in any passenger car, for even a stock truck this will just feel like a road with some dirt on it. Still had a good time, just was hoping for some more bouncing around or rocks to drive over.

The trail was good, rated as easy, but still enough to give your tires and shocks a workout. Road is some what paved to a point but plenty of dirt road to get your ride dirty. Some scenic spots to stop and take pictures. As of this review there is construction happening deep into the trail but there is a detour given however the trail is not a "thru road". The trail will end in a split one going to paso and the other to cambria beach, my advice go during the day possibly on the weekend.

Single lane most of the time with blind corners so be careful. Beautiful views and well worth the trip.
