Drove sedan on the 4.5 mile dirt road part of this route to the last bend, which has areas to park. From there a short trail to the NE gets you to two craters with the later one featuring a pond. Later I found out that there is a total of seven recommended stops. You find them as waypoints in the recording by Greg Mthiker.
