Most of the trail is an old Jeep road; if you have an ok 4x4 you can go out another mile or so and park at the gate, where a couple bow hunters seemed to be camped.

Nice ridge views of Lake Bowman and both Rock Lakes are nice, although not the most spectacular in this region.

Trailhead is *just* accessible by a low clearance vehicle; we parked our Volt (very low clearance) about 600 feet from the trailhead about at the 11.5 mile marker on 18, before it got a bit rocky.
