The first 5 miles of the trail is just a dirt road with dispersed camping sites flanking it every half mile or so. The final mile is where things get fun. There's a switchback with a trailhead that goes up the backside of Agassiz peak, and the road just goes to hell. There's tons of rocks and washed out ditches to cross through, at one point we got the Jeep on 3 wheels. Eventually the road ends but you're rewarded with a giant mud puddle to crash through at the end if there's been recent rain. Pretty fun trail to go out on if you're looking for a short drive.
