Turned around at second water crossing. washed out on right side. In Nissan Rogue AWD. Drove Bridal Veil Falls yesterday. No issue. wasn't taking a chance on a tire in a hole I couldn't get out. 4WD and dirt bikes no problem. Road was dry. Trees just beginning to turn.

Only drove a few miles in but it was all gorgeous scenery. Found a nice offshoot to hang a hammock and have lunch. Was perfectly easy in a stock 4Runner - we passed a guy camping out of a Subaru Outback - so as long as it's dry there's not much of a challenge if you have even a little more clearance than a Camry.

Fun little drive with some beautiful scenery. Nothing technical at all, although it was dry when we drove it. I imagine it gets pretty slippery after some rain. We were running out of daylight so we took 58p (basically a fire road) back to the highway after completing the trail. Stock 2018 4Runner TRD-OR

Definitely not easy today I guess from the afternoon rains. Parts of trail were muddy that made for a slippery accent.

Beautiful scenery. Easy is accurate but don’t recommend passenger cars. Well worth the time.

Good beginners trail with beautiful scenery along the way. Worth the drive just to see everything if you like to explore.

This was an amazingly beautiful drive. Our family enjoyed it immensely and we would recommend it highly. We drove it easily in our 4Runner.

Informal camping spots with rock fire rings. Lots of birds chirping and a slight breeze.

We were unsure if this road would be open from Ridgeway to Telluride, but it was. It was muddy in some areas, but not bad at all. Our rented Jeep Wrangler did get muddy on the sides. The road was pretty bumpy, but definitely tolerable. On the way up we saw elk and towards the top there were a lot of elk tracks. At the top the aspens are just starting to get leaves and the road is carved through the snow. Beautiful views from this road! We loved the groves of Aspens

Went through October 2018 with snow on the ground in several areas. It is a little rocky but not bad, dont really need 4 wheel drive on this. We did this in a 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk no problem.

Meh - not worth the time. A couple spots had nice views of the valley below, but nothing spectacular. The road is very rocky and bumpy. After doing this trail I feel quite beaten up even with airing down the tires! I can agree that this trail should not be attempted when raining as there is 8 miles of clay/dirt road that would be very slick when wet. My advice, find another trail.

Great views! Loved all the Aspen trees. Would like to come back when the leaves are changing.

Awesome drive. Started from ridgeway and ended in telluride. No trouble for a 4x4 equipped vehicle or 2 wheel fwd with decent clearance. Incredible views..peaceful and never felt like it was unsafe. 4x4 2010 Tacoma 4d

Rode it for the first time in October 2017 on a large adventure motorcycle (BMW R1200 GS) with two friends. Had just come off the road by Silver Jack Reservoir, which was a dirt highway compared to this. This was by far one of the best roads ever. Water crossings (there were about three) were no problem. At one, we ran across a family dressed in Sunday best. Hilarious. This is a popular getaway for folks from Telluride. We took it from the Ridgway side. The aspens were out. Do check out https://goo.gl/e6tAqn for some awesome pics. We came over this ridge, and started down into the valley, and never having been there before, we were thinking we were coming into Telluride, but then you see that there's not much at the bottom, and you see the road heading back up the other side of this beautiful valley, and once you top the next ridge, it's clear you are now coming into town, with the airport below and the state highway. Really cool ride. Totally doable on a big GS if you are experienced, stand on the pegs and counter-balance in turns. Some very rocky sections you have to power through, and, like I said, a few water crossings that can leave you and your bike with that adventure biking look. Haha. Muddy as heck walking into the New Sheridan for our $200+/night rooms!

Went from ridgeway to telluride... AMAZING!!!! We drove a Kia Sarento and had no problems at all.. husband did great job navigating rocks and puddles!!! The views are stunning and massive!! Many spots with overlooks for picnic or just resting and looking out across the mtns and listening to the aspens!!!

Easy for sure but a long trail with lots to see on the way! many side trails to check out in the wooded areas of the road! Was a nice detour to get from telluride to hwy 62! easy cruise in 2wheel drive the entire way.

Loved the drive from Ridgway to Telluride. It was harder than green in my opinion because of some mud ruts that would not be passable w/o 4x4. Camped out and awoke to wonderful views.

First time we've ever been "off roading". Was worried as we were driving a extended length expedition. Encountered no problems what so ever. Trail was just perfect for our first time. Saw a few cars and mini vans and would not even have wanted to try it in those as we encountered a few deep mud holes, ruts and water crossings. The views will not disappoint!

Gorgeous drive with sensational views. Easy but still fun "off-road" trip. It's a road all the way, but a dirt road with lots of bumps, mud, streams (snow melt), narrow turns, and million dollar views. We went the direction from Ridgway to Telluride. The aspen groves are stunning and I bet this drive is even better in the fall when the trees start turning. Lots of photo ops of the mountains, valleys, trees and flowers. We were in a Wrangler Unlimited and a Lexus SUV - both handled the drive fine (with lots of trail dust and mud). Hard to beat the beauty of this drive. Colorado at its finest.

I went down this road for about 45 minutes (stopped to take a loooot of pictures). I was in my Nissan Rogue and did perfectly fine. Granted, this was after driving as far as the road takes you to Bridal Veil Falls, so comparatively a breeze :) I stopped toward a large opening and camped with about 6 other small groups/couples. The best place to wake up to -- I will be going back as much as humanly possible!

This road is a blast! If you don't mind getting muddy, you are in for a treat. Kick it into high and get to splashing!

First trail I did in Colorado. I thought it was very easy.

Might be my favorite road, anywhere. in the fall the Aspens are amazing. In the summer the fragrance of the pine forest is amazing. Can get very slick when wet.

Took this on a beautiful fall afternoon when the aspens were golden. If you have the time, a great "longcut" to Telluride.
