Moving up the trail there are signs of a lot of vehicle traffic, so be careful and watch for fast moving side-by-sides and motorcycles. The trail is very easy and during the summer you might not need 4 wheel drive. I would recommend high clearance because there are many points that can scrape the bottom of your off-road or overland vehicle. There are many side trails to explore on this route and a ton of different camping areas to explore and map out.
