Beautiful aspen turning on mostly smooth rounded peaks. nice smooth road, a few technical parts, we turned around before the actual pass tho (which is more difficult with a shale shelf road). few minor water crossings. panoramic views and gorgeous scenery abounds. Minor traffic, mostly motorcycles and bikes.

This area is completely gorgeous. We did not have the proper information and attempted to summit from the north which, in our Xterra PRO4X was unachievable because of a 15 foot area of slide rock with a huge incline. Maybe from the south, but coming down would still be hairy. Camping on the north side will be amazing in the future, as we will go back to the area for sure, really breathtaking, ample private turn-offs for backwoods camping while being surrounded by stunning and huge peaks.

I 4 wheeled this pass while my husband Mtn biked it. There are some very technical parts and places that you must walk your bike. We went early October so the leaves where beautiful lots of snow at the top. Great views! You must be a little crazy to Mtn bike this trail which is why my husband does it! :)
