For nearly the first seven miles, the road is 2WD as it travels through the Wolf Springs Ranch. From the intersection with FR 412, it becomes a 4WD road and begins to switchback its way toward the pass. It is narrow and rough but presents no great problem as the surface is sound. The forest service has cut numerous channels across the road to protect it from erosion. Special Attractions: The spectacular Great Sand Dunes National Monument with much more scenic access than the paved roads. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
