this trail was indicated as a difficulty rating of 3. i am not sure if this is on a scale of 5 or 10, or something else, but i would say this is a fairly easy trail. i rarely needed to use 4WD, but only due to some ice and snow. the trail directions were spot on with the mileages listed. i think any truck or vehicle with decent ground clearance could make this trip. the views near the top of the mountain were spectacular. i would recommend this trail if your in the area.
This is a great little day trip. Due to some past fires in the area, the roads are in good condition. However, the last two or three miles were quite steep, but I was able to make it in my willys with 2 low. Wildlife was active, seeing a doe and two offspring in the lower country along with an array of birds and rodents throughout the trip.
