The Augustine Pass is a narrow, very slow trail with small rocks/boulders along it's path. It twists between often high sided rock outcrops and some reversing was required to get through. Pretty cool to see the trail coming from Bradshaw. From here I continued skirting the outcrops and headed up to the 10. Idling along is the worst for gas consumption - be prepared - isolated is an understatement!

Just took this trail today. It was enjoyable but a bit challenging for a new comer. I was glad my SUV was equiped with skid plates it did scrape a few times. There are some good sized rocks and some tricky spots but taking it slow I was able to make it ok. Alow enough time to get to the trail. The roads leading to the trail are only in fair shape so you can't go very fast and it takes a while.
