Trail Overview

Sunshine Canyon is one of the easier ways to get up into the Five Mile mountain area. A couple of small dips and bumps here and there, but nothing too technical about this section. My truck remained in 2WD the entire way. It did appear that a tractor had come through and smoothed out the trail in some areas. Scattered primitive campsites were noted along the bottom of the trail.

Rough/Deteriorated
This road has become quite deteriorated, away from the mountains it is normal but once you head up the canyon the road becomes rutted and washed out but still passable. There are also sections where in between trees tumbleweeds piled up and were cleared.

Trail is currently pretty rutted out in a few spots, up top there is lots of mud and some snow. Turned around instead of completing the trail after some good mudding.
