Marshall Pass is a mild dirt road. Minimal washboard. Dual car passable. Some sections ok for cars. Beautiful, easy drive.

Poncha Creek is 4WD all the time. High amount of med size rocks. Narrow. Some switchbacks. All downhill.

We did this in a jeep sahara unlimited durng a bad rain storm with no problem...while it made it a blast. I would watch news cause this area has alot of water issues. On the fly camping is ideal.
