Rocky Prairie Professional Review and Guide
"Get ready for spectacular vistas across a deep river valley and rugged wilderness, as well as a beautiful and adventurous drive on a mild 4WD road amid several interesting canyons. This trip crosses Cleman Mountain, a high (almost 5,000 feet), 15-mile-long volcanic ridge named in 1868 for settler Augustan Cleman.
It’s easy on the west side of Cleman Mountain, on a narrow, maintained dirt-and-gravel road. I rate the east side moderate, since the native-surface roads are rougher and more rudimentary. The east side requires high clearance and, if you’re heading west (uphill), four-wheel drive. Staying on course amid the east side’s numerous spurs is the biggest challenge. Follow your map closely."
