The section is easy and flat converted rail grade. There's no need for 4x4 or to lock the rear differential. The surface is packed gravel without large rocks. Some of the areas have larger stones in the gravel but they're not an issue. Do pay attention to the edge of the trail, as it can have steep backs since it is converted rail grade. Bridge crossings are well-marked and are the only areas where you need to use extra care and slow down. Note that as you go east from Onamia, an asphalt trail parallels the ATV trail. Per the signs, keep off the asphalt, stay on the gravel, and slow down when others are using the asphalt non-motorized trail.
