Trail Overview

This trail is well maintained, but is a single lane with a few sections of cliff drop-offs that will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck. You'll find plenty of pullouts to let other vehicles pass if needed. It leads to Hart's Pass campground and ultimately to Slate Peak. The road is very easy for SUVs and high clearance, and is passable to lower clearance vehicles with care. No trailers are allowed. The road would be slightly more difficult if wet and would be impassable in the snow. No cell service.
