This is an off-roading route going from White Mountain Road down to Bishop. This route could also be done starting in Bishop. There are some hikes at the top and along the way!

Impassible at the moment on the Hilltop you run right away into 3 feet snow drifts and later on a few hundred feet into more than 7 feet of snow drifts on the road, A snowcat just started cleaning up there the roads that day when I was up there, I talked to the driver and he told me even the snow at had issues driving through the 9 feet snow drifts. So you can go up from Bishop side but no way down on the other side at the moment and now it snowed again or will even more...

Great views and absolutely exciting for a first timer. Definitely a low gear experience coming down. 5-6 water crossings over a light running creek.

Fun trail, amazing views from the top area. If traveling down from White Mountain you will want to lock in low gear and use breaks lightly, which is hard to do with the steep grade, loose rock, and shelf road. I recommend taking a break at one of the large turns to give them a rest. Spotted 32 Big Horn Sheep in the mouth of the Canyon. If you don't see them, shut your car off and listen, you can hear them causing rocks to fall as they walk around. There are six or more water crossings, all which are pretty low, about 2 inches deep if that. The last one (or first if you are traveling up) is the deepest, roughly 5-6inches deep.

This trail crosses a creek at least six times, went in July with 105+ degree heat so stopping a couple of times to soak your feet and wet a towel makes this an added plus. The trail starts out with a very subtle incline until about the 6 mile mark when it begins to climb fairly steep with many switchbacks. rock formations and views are fantastic!

Easy but steep 4wd track. Terrific views from the switchbacks. Take the alternate route near the top for a more challenging finish.
