A variety of challenges with scenic camp spots along the route. Camp and park at both ends of the trail. The east end has a larger camping area. Several marked side roads to explore. Great trail for ATVs and dirt bikes. Makes a good weekend outing when combined with Pierson Park Road, Trail #11. Most of the route is easy to moderate. Only one short section on the east side is difficult. This spot is steep with challenging rock ledges. Another part of the trail has large mud holes. Some can be bypassed; others cannot. An experienced driver in an aggressive, high-clearance fourwheeldrive SUV should have no problems going west to east because the difficult section is downhill. Uphill is a bit more challenging.

This was a fun trail, it had good scenery, fun riding and was a beautifull area. We also did the Pierson Park Road, we liked it even better than the Johnny Park Road, it really had good ATV riding. Both roads make a good 2 day trip.

Exciting trail, only a very small portion is difficult, I would say 30 feet of it, which involves crawling over a couple of rocks. I did it easily in a LR3. Also, at the end o fthe trail I definitely recommend taking the optional FS 118A at the end, its rating of difficult deserves it for the initial climb.
