The road is often narrow (single car width) and steep with sharp turns that would make towing a smaller camper trailer difficult, but not impossible. Otherwise this road is in fairly decent shape in the summertime and may be passable without 4WD. Other times of the year, snow & mud may add to the difficulty. The road has been known to be snow covered into mid-June some years.
