This was a fun 4x4 drive to take my Jeep on. The road is not easy to spot from the main paved road, hence it is not well traveled and if you do encounter anyone else along the way, they are likely doing the same thing you are. Plenty of solitude with cool rock formations to look at along the way. The road is a bit rocky in a few spots but not anything extreme or crazy. Exploring the Inyo Mine ghost town way out there was pretty cool too. Fun drive :)

Fairly easy. One tough section for a bit of crawling. Made it up and over in our Tacoma.

Eye of the Needle and Inyo Mine well worth the 4 wheel drive.
