Great skiing, beautiful road. Snowmobiles seemed to be ok sharing the road

This is a nice drive and Red Table is an ok hike spot. There is heavy atv/ dirt bike traffic though. Not a good road to tow a trailer longer than about 10' on. The Gypsum side has a very icy hill down heading over to the Garfield county side. There is of course no guard rail or shoulder.

Easy drive even with snow on the ground The road goes mostly at the bottom of the canyon and Gypsum Creek Several good side trails in summer We saw elk very near the entrance to White River National Forest
