Ascent Trip ReportFollowed Kathy Rich’s driving tracks which are incredibly useful. I have a Subaru Forester with slightly beefier than stock tires but otherwise unmoded. The road was a 3 on a Colorado 14ers.com system. Tough 3 but certainly not a 4. I kept up speed on the gravel section and slower on the rocky section. The river crossing was very easy with a solid bottom. Overall the drive was a bit over an hour each way. I could have driven a bit further, maybe eve to the turnoff to the desired dry gulch if I had wanted to push the vehicle and did a bit of rock clearing in key spots.
