This is not a maintained road, 4 wheel drive recommended but not required all the time. Watch out for wash out you may have to turn back. Campground is 1\2 way between US95 and US93 (start and end of trail). Please sign in at visitor center and make sure you have plenty of water. Stock off road vehicles will have no trouble on this route (Jeep, FJ, hummer, 4x4 truck, etc) Not recommended for passenger cars, 2x4 trucks will be OK but may want to use caution. Drive to your skill level

The camp ground 1/2 i. is very nice. Rest rooms with no water. I think 6 spots or so. Elevation around 6500’ so nights in May are low 50s. Gorgeous trail.

Have been to the halfway point campground many times and stayed, this was only our second trip driving all the way through and found the road to be in better condition now. Great scenery and opportunities to view wildlife taking a leisurely drive. Took the Pine Nut Road spur this trip also but were not able to explore much due to a large group camped at the end of the road, a bit higher clearance needed for Pine Nut.

Very beautiful and interesting. Highly recommended. Make sure you have enough time to stop enjoying the beautiful nature. Took us 5 hours with 3 ten minutes rest breaks with our 17 Jeep GC Summit with stock tires.

Nice scenery..but make sure you have a high enough clearance vehicle...and plan to be there at a minimum of 4hrs. So worth it with the different combinations it brings...

Was a fun trail to do. Going to do it again sometime soon. I just hope there aren't brand new "cars" out on the trail this time. And when u say cars i mean leave you Hyundai's at home.

Lots of rocks on the trail, ground clearance probably more important than 4wd because of all the rocks. Great views with a nice campground in the middle.

Nice trail with great views! Very rocky, and 4WD probably not absolutely necessary *when* the weather has been good, but 4WD definitely makes it a little easier on you and your vehicle. Took about 3 hours with a few stops including lunch at the campsite. Caught a nail or something in my tire about 7 miles from US93.

Give yourself ample time. Easy off-roading trail but lots of things to stop and see.

It was a fun day drive. Took about 4 hours to complete. Went during March in the dry season. Pretty rocky, which made for a bumpy ride. Had no problems in my 4Runner, didn't need 4WD once. Could see the need in rainy/snowy conditions. Made a day trip from it while staying in Vegas.
