Ascent Trip Report

Following the driving directions on summitpost, I parked at a pullout shortly after crossing under the power lines at about 3200'. However, there were two more sections of narrow pavement after this point which should be easily traversable by low-clearance 2WD. This will get you an extra .5 mile up the road to around 3600'. High-clearance vehicles should face no obstacles going all the way to the end of the road, except perhaps for one tricky-looking washout about .5 mile from the end.
