Trail Overview

This road runs parallel to I-90 and can be entered from the East or West. You can hop back onto the interstate at either end making it a great side detour. While any 2 wheel drive vehicle should make it without issue, be warned that there are a lot of decently sized (both round and deep) pot holes along the way that are better handled with SUV clearance vehicles. Overall it's a great little side trail with plenty of pull off camping areas. Only licensed drivers and vehicles are allowed on the road per signage.

Trail is fine. A lot of pot holes but trail easily manageable with a regular sedan. A lot of great off shoots for camping or just a nice bonfire w/ a view of the river.
