Trail Overview

Little Rosa Base follows the northern foothills and grasslands of the Withington Wilderness and is a point-to-point trail connecting FSR-549 to CR-107. The views along the route are mostly wide open and give a great perspective of the surrounding mountain ranges. The track itself is fairly well maintained but does show signs of washouts and repair. There are no large obstacles along the trail and should be easily traversed by most high-clearance AWD, 4WD, and 4x4 vehicles. There is a sign notifying of the road being washed out, however, it appears to be repaired and maintained frequently. Drivers should be aware of this area after heavy rain or snow melt. The road is overall wide enough for a single vehicle with room to pass with the exception of a few sections where the road narrows. The surface is primarily dirt with rocks and some very minor rutting. Cell service is moderate with a few areas having weak service due to lower elevations within the hills. Dispersed camping is only permitted on the first mile of FSR-52 when approaching from FSR-549/Mount Withington via Monica Saddle. Alternatively, those wanting to camp can utilize the FSR-52A spur or FSR-56 just to the south for additional dispersed camping grounds. There are several additional motorized spurs in the area that provide more areas to explore.

Difficulty

Drivers can expect to encounter some smaller loose rocks along the route. There is one wash section that shows signs of repair that drivers should be aware and cautious of after heavy rains. Some minor rutting is present, but overall the road is well maintained. There are no large obstacles or notable grades along the trail and it will be easily traversed by most high-clearance AWD and 4WD vehicles.
