The Geyser Pass Road is mostly gravel, affording a somewhat depressing climb at the start, but soon it narrows and becomes hardpack through a beautiful forest. After the doubletrack climb to the pass, the singletrack is a welcome surprise as it drops and becomes technical in a BIG hurry. Like all singletrack in the La Sals, this trek, though seemingly low in mileage, is very difficult. The singletrack is narrow with many sections of loose and embedded rocks and includes a bit of vertical exposure. Trail Surface: At altitude on loose rock, roots, fallen trees, tight switchbacks, steep grades, and mud and/or gray powdery sand. Not good when wet.
