It was a beautiful day for a drive so we gave this trail a shot even though it is pretty early in the season. Road was in pretty good shape but low clearance vehicles might have trouble about 5 miles in where people drove up the road when it was muddy. The scenery is breathtaking. The road is easy though lots of narrow places and blind switchbacks. I have pictures I will upload later. We had to turn around at 10.7 miles in due to deep snow covering the road. We saw turkeys, lots of ground squirrels and a mule deer.
I'm going back in a few weeks when the road is completely open.
The road starts off right next to Deep Creek and then turns up into the hills. So if you want to see the creek up close do it in the first 2 miles.

After Deep Lake you need high clearance and 4x4. Before that a car could make it, normally.
