At this point, along the ridge, there is a small area where you can turn around. The dirt trail is a double-track trail. It has several steep, rocky and rutted areas that will require 4WD with high clearance. Food, gas and lodging are available at the trailhead located 10 miles from Minden, NV along Hwy 395.
