    25.7 miles on gravel and four-wheel-drive roads; 10.8 miles on paved road. The gravel and four-wheel-drive roads are basically packed clay. When wet it’s slicker than snot on a glass doorknob and is best avoided. The upper portion of Long Canyon is rocky and eroded. The pavement is comparatively smooth, hard, and black, with white and yellow paint occurring in definite patterns.
